No identification, no studio name. He has a nice ear, I guess. (I think he was trying to grow a blond mustache.)
The third photo from the Louisa A. Evans’ album was taken at the Richmond Photograph Co. at 827 1/2 Broad Street in Richmond, Virginia.
The gentleman does appear to have a watch fob/chain near his waist, but the blob above that seems to be damage to the photograph.
I love the typography and design on the back of the photo! And, yes, the back really is that pink-ish color. The picture on the front has a boarder of the same pink, which I cropped digitally away.
The second photograph in the Louisa A. Evans’ album was taken at the Kuhn & Cummins studio on 48 and 50 N. Charles Street in Baltimore, Maryland.
She dressed up well for this portrait, with her earring, corsage, elaborate lace and pin at her throat, and her crimped/curled fringe on her forehead.
The first photograph in Louisa A. Evans’ album.
I love the little collar she is wearing! The photograph was taken at A.H. Blunt’s studio in Danville, Virginia.

I plan to slowly upload the photographs from this album (there are nearly 40). If anyone has information about the album and the original owner, please share.
