This cabinet card features a portrait of a handsome young man with slicked back hair. He is dressed beautifully and well groomed. The photographer is named Smith but the location of his studio is not listed on the front or the reverse of the photograph. The initials on the front of the card indicate that the photographers full name is C. R. Smith. There was a photographer named C. R. Smith located in Clearwater, Minnesota. He was listed in Camera Craft (1908) and also in The Photographic Journal of America (1917). It is not confirmed that this C. R. Smith is the photographer of this cabinet card. It is interesting to note that the Cabinet Card Gallery has a number of photographs by the photographer who photographed this gentleman. All of the photographs share the same logo containing the photographer’s initials. To view these photographs, click on the category “Photographer: Smith CR”

  1. CR Smith-I have a photo taken by CR Smith. I found another one in Guilford, Maine.

  2. I too have a photo thats a little older fromCR Smith – not a cabinet card. Very faintly it says Portland, ME and the boy in it is named – and from Portland, ME. This photo looks to be taken around 1910.

  3. Thank you for sharing the information about CR Smith. You are the second person who reported that there was a photographer named CR Smith in Maine. I wonder if the CR Smith in Minnesota is the same CR Smith in maine. It is possible that he may have relocated his studio during his career. Thanks again.

  4. I have 7 cabinet photos by C. R. Smith in my collection. They probably date from the 1890s.
