Photographer J. S. Fritz photographed this portrait of a man with a beard. This beard is no ordinary beard. This beard is extraordinarily thick. His mustache is also not ordinary. This mustache is extraordinarily long. The photographer of this cabinet card hotograph is John S. Fritz. He was born on his father’s Pennsylvania farm in 1861. He left home at 15 to work in Philadelphia and while there, learned photography. He then worked with his brother in law as a traveling photographer. He left the business to pursue other occupations and he worked in both Atlantic City, New Jersey, and Philadelphia. He returned to photography and at some point operated a photography studio located at 852 Penn Street in Reading. He was married to Elizabeth Apffel  and had at least three children. This cabinet card photo is in very good condition (see scans)
