I recently purchased this old inscribed portrait picture and have been trying to identify who he is... The picture is signed but I can't make out the last name. I'm guessing "John Bowman or Bourman" but I can't seem to find any info on either. I'm also trying to understand why someone would inscibe and sign a picture of themselves if they weren't of importance or relatively famous? Which leads me to believe this person is of significance in one way or another. The photo appears to have been taken by Underwood & Underwood New York...Does anyone recognize this person or can tell me anything about who is? Maybe someone with better eyes can read his signature? Any help would be much appreciated.
