Can anyone identify the photographer who took this photo of Abraham Lincoln?


The inscription at the bottom of the photo says "Published and Copyright 1894, A.W. Elson & Co., Boston" but the photographer from whose picture the A.W. Elson photogravure was made is not identified. A.W. Elson is no longer in business.

    Incidentally, if you download the larger oval version of that photo (a 27 meg tiff file), you will see that the photograph has also been altered (with a pen and ink I assume) to beef up the darker values around and in the eyes of the sitter.
