British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Identification - Portrait Photography taken from album dated 1862


last year I bought an album containing handwritten poems and some photographies. The first dated entry within the album is 22 Jan 1862. 

Please help me identify this pleasant elderly gentleman.

Thanks and kind regards,

Dear all,

based on my recent research the gentleman on the Albumen print might be Henry Poolly Cooper who was born 1834 in Chepstow, Wales and immigrated to the US in 1860. He worked as attorney and died 1905 in Denver, Colorado, USA. Sofar I have no real proof that my estimation is right, so every info would be highly welcome.

Many thanks and best regards, Rebecca
