Portrait on a white edged and textured cabinet card. Unusually, the print has a white border, which separates it from the darker card. The photographer has created a coherent artificial setting for the young lad. Cabinet cards were losing ground to portraits with greater areas of surrounding card at this time, and not many cabinet cards were produced after the early Edwardian years. There is a suggestion that the '& Co' was added in 1904, which means that the card above would come from that year or 1905.
