nice stash

The gentleman is this cabinet card portrait has a wonderful mustache. It has been perfectly trimmed and maintained. He posed for this photograph at the studio of Oliver Boudnas De Morat which was located at the southwest corner of 8th and Market in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. De Morat was a pioneer photographer. An article in “Photographic Mosaics” (1867) makes mention of his endorsing a certain photographic product. He is also cited in “The Philadelphia Photographer” (1870). He is considered  to have been among the most prolific producers of cdv portraits. He was born in Montreal, Canada in 1836 and died in Philadelphia in 1902.
