Handsome guy who looks a little careworn. Cabinet Card photo taken by Marratt’s City Hall Photograph Gallery, 131, 133 and 135 Woodward Ave., Detroit, Michigan, proprietor William Marratt. There is nothing on the back of the card. If you look very closely at the bottom left of the card you will see the photographer’s name in script; readable is the capital M, and the two t’s at the end. To the right of that is the studio address. For more information on the owner of the gallery see William Marratt, Proprietor of Marratt’s City Hall Photograph Gallery.
