The image was produced by the Hastings studio in Boston, Massachusetts. The studio had a branch in Newport, Rhode Island. George H. Hastings was born in Massachusetts in 1850. He operated a studio (Ritz & Hastings) with Ernest Ferdinand Ritz from sometime in the  1860’s until the 1880’s. He had his own studio from the 1880’s through sometime in the 1890’s.  The 1880 US census finds Hastings living with his brother and mother and working as a photographic artist.
