This happy couple is from the C Murray Album. Their images are not repeated in the album and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to identify them. The photographer is DP Thomson (aka David P Thomson) on the corner of Walnut and 10th, in Kansas City, MO. The studio was established in 1874, probably at a different location as the notes I have found place him on Main street. However, later in Kansas City’s history, DP Thompson was quite successful, sharing a two story corner building with the FG Smith Piano Co. It is known that DP Thomson took over 175,000 photographs during his tenure in KC MO.
There were some interesting notes on the back of the cabinet card:
They were very adamant that the gentleman’s picture be made into a bust portrait, weren’t they!
