I have two of these Spanish military images-- probably the same guy.
The image is a standard CDV and based on the style and construction it dates from the 1870s.
The photographer is impressed at the bottom of the image "W.W. Wood, Manila". Blank back.
Based on the Philippine photographer and era, I would suspect that the subject is Spanish and possibly part of the government/ military. Maybe even the Governor General?
Feel free to post any thoughts or ideas on the subject or research avenues.
