We know from the photographer's imprint that the the young man had his portrait taken at the photography studio of E.J. Potter in Mansfield, Ohio.
The cabinet card portrait was popular between 1866 and 1910. The style of clothing worn by this young man helps to give a rough estimate of the time period, ca. 1870 - 1890.
