Meet Uncle Dick. His name is inscribed on the reverse of the cabinet card. He appears to be middle aged and possess a sunny disposition. He is well dressed and has a nicely groomed mustache. Note the width of his tie. I find it interesting that the width of neck ties tend to vary as the years go by. This photograph was produced by the Adams studio in Waterloo, Iowa. It is difficult to ascertain the full name of the photographer. W. G. Adams worked in Waterloo in the 1880’s but I could not find any information about him. Asa W. Adams (1842-1915) operated a studio in McGregor, Iowa (1863), Decorah, Iowa (1863-1884). In 1866 he married Emma J. Fuller and the couple had four children. Adams conducted his photography business in Waterloo (1884-after 1900). Adams died in 1915 and is buried in Decorah. This cabinet card is in very good condition (see scans).
