Original cabinet card showing a man with a large beard, photographed by Phillips & Bergstresser of Danville, Illinois. On the back he is identified as the photographer John A. Phillips. I have another identified photo of Phillips in my own collection, and it's definitely the same man as seen in the image I am offering here. Whoever wrote the name on the back guessed a date of 1885.. I would think it was closer to 1890.

John Albert Phillips was born about 1849 and was a photographer, mostly in Danville, for many years. This cabinet card is 6.5" x 4.25" and is in very good or better antique condition.
