Heritage has a listing in their February auction for the same cabinet. Yours is larger than the Heritage one, although yours obviously is in rough shape. Great item nonetheless - I certainly will be interested to see what you decide to do with it, as one who collects Boston items from the era!

Nice cabinet, rockthree. I would leave it as it is. It is a very sharp photo.
Nice cabinet, Jay.
Manny and Bryan, to your point, a board member saw this "man in a suit" on eBay and recognized it as HOF boxer Jim Corbett. I posted it the other day in the Boxing section. The mount is similar to the General Stafford which I think puts the Corbett photo around 1898-99.

Is that Teddy Z. ? The Chickering's sure have some great focus.

I looked on ebay and saw this Oarsman O'Connor graded by sgc...

I bought one of an anonymous person with the same font as the O'Connor card.

Does anyone recognize this person in the photo? Or does anyone have any addional information on Chickering Studio Cabinets? I have read that Chickering Studios took many photos of celebrities, politicians, and atheletes in the Boston area.

Despite my earlier post on how many anonymous people Chickering photographed, I too have a question about the possibility of two photos I bought a few years ago. Below is the first one. I sincerely doubt it, but is there any chance this is Vic Willis? I have attached an image of his I found online. I am not good with facial recognition, so I am fairly certain I will get several quick posts stating it is not. I always like to double check though. I can get a better scan if needed. The third image is the other Chickering with similar damage and style I purchased (total of 2.00 spent).
