What it is:

Cabinet card measuring 4.25 x 6.5 inches.

What I know about it:

Photographer is Suddard of Fall River, Massachusetts.  [I believe that’s J. F. Suddard.]  Otherwise undated and unidentified.

Comments:

I’m terrible at guessing people’s ages, but he looks like a young man who has grown a mustache to lend distinction and maturity to his boyish face.  I imagine him being fresh out of college and struggling to establish himself in a profession, or being thrust into the family business, burdened at an early age with expectations and responsibilities.  They say kids grow up so fast these days, but I think that’s always been true.
