This cabinet card portrait features a gentleman dressed as if he is wearing a military uniform. In reality, this serious looking man is a bowler. The pin on his hat has the letters UGSB. I was unable to identify the full name of the organization. The gentleman is wearing two pins on his jacket, one of which, shows falling bowling pins. The second pin may show a bowling ball. This cabinet card photograph is from the studio of Helmuth Schumacher. He operated his business out of Newark, New Jersey, from 1880 to after 1940. Schumacher was at the William Street address, where this photo was taken, between 1880 and 1897. SOLD
