What it is:

Cabinet card measuring 4.25 x 6.5 inches.

What I know about it:

Photographer is William Hampton of Glasgow, Scotland.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.


This one amuses me slightly, because it seems something alarming happened over the photographer’s left shoulder, startling the man posing, and knocking the camera at a slight tilt.  I’m sure that’s not the desired effect, but that’s how I can’t help but see it.  By the way, I’ve included above a scan of the back for those interested in the graphic design, and other examples of the photographer’s work can be found here, including at least one other photo showing the same table and chair.

  1. 195-and-a-half Argyle street? Some Harry Potter type of address…

  2. Maybe the floor of the magical studio just happened to be tilted slightly. 🙂
