Old Photographs Saved From Trash Can ~ #50 Unidentified Bearded Man

There are still a few unidentified photographs in this collection. The photographer of this picture was James A. Mullen (1834-1919) who had a business in Lexington, Fayette County, Kentucky. Mullen established his business in Lexington at about the time of the Civil War.

Doesn’t this bearded man look like someone you’ve seen in a history book? How would you date this picture?

On the reverse side two different persons wrote the name, Minnie Campbell. Was this her maiden name or married name? How would you date this photo and estimate her year of birth?
