CLERGYMAN IN LUDLOW, VERMONT

A clergyman is featured in this cabinet card portrait from a photographer named Moore in Ludlow, Vermont. The man has an educated appearance emanating from his beard and pince-nez spectacles.Pince-nez are a style of spectacles that was popular in the nineteenth century. These glasses were not supported by ear pieces but instead, stayed on the wearer by pinching on the bridge of his or her nose.  The clergyman  is wearing a pin near his collar and part of the chain from his pocket watch is visible at the bottom of the image. The Photographic Journal of America (1890) mentions photographer, C. A. Moore of Ludlow, Vermont. He is likely the same Moore that created this image.
