A distinguished looking and well dressed gentleman poses for his portrait in the studio of A. K. P. Trask at 1210 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The gentleman is dressed quite fashionably; wearing a bowler hat, a tweed overcoat, and holding a cane. The photographer, Trask, attended the 1871 convention of the National Photographic Association and the Philadelphia Inquirer (1872) reported that the pictures produced by Trask were “bewitchingly beautiful”.
