PORTRAIT OF AN ELDERLY MAN IN FAYETTE, OHIO

This cabinet card photograph features a friendly looking elderly man. His countenance and expression exudes a certain softness. Not only does this gentleman look like a nice guy; he also has a fantastic beard which features no moustache or connecting sideburns. The photographer of this image is Charles Burr Marsh (1861-?). He was born in Michigan, and married in Ohio in 1887 to June White (1867-1933). He had studios in Fayette, Wauseon, and Galion, Ohio. In 1908 he became a charter member of the Professional Photographers Society of Ohio. He served as an officer of the organization. A 1915 issue of Erie Railroad Magazine indicates that Marsh also worked as a newspaper photographer. As of the date of this writing, the Cabinet Card Gallery has 3 other Burr Marsh images in it’s collection. This scalloped edged cabinet card is in very good condition (see scans).
