Man with Bowler hat at Desk

Man with Bowler hat at Desk

Possibly a self-portrait, a man wearing a bowler hat seated next to a desk stares away from the camera. A calendar featuring artwork of a horse preparing to pull a two-wheel cart dated January, 1899 hangs on the wall.

The photograph may have been printed on commercially available pre-sensitized Venus paper manufactured by the Peerless Blue Print Co., and was included in a cardboard box of this brand expiring in 1899 when acquired from an Indiana seller by PhotoSeed.
