Here is a man with character. This older gentleman is quite an intense looking man. He has a great looking beard. The beard has a layered cut appearance. The studio that produced this photograph is Holcombe & Alvord of Detroit, Michigan. Research reveals little about the men that operated this studio. Their full names were found to be Burton J. Holcombe and Charles E. Alvord. An article appearing in “The Photographic Times” (1884) announced that the partners had opened a new gallery at 220 Woodward Avenue in Detroit. Advertising on this cabinet card reveals that the studio at some point had been located next door at number 22 Woodward Avenue.

  1. How do you get such great reproductions of your cabinet cards on this website. They are just clear as a bell.

    • Thanks for the compliment. I wish I could take some credit for the “great reproductions”. I do no editing of the photographs. I just use a Canon MX310 scanner and I tend to predominately collect images that have decent clarity.
