He is holding a photographic album and and there are books and another album on the table beside him. Hiram C. Moore was the proprietor of the Photo Parlor that produced this photograph. Moore’s studio was located in Springfield, Massachusetts. An advertisement for his studio appeared in the fourth volume of Good Housekeeping (1886). At one time Hiram was partners with his brother Chauncey L. Moore in a Springfield studio. To view photographs by Chauncy Moore, click on the category Photographer: Moore (Chauncey).
