This was a studio that operated from the turn of the century until the early 1940's. They were "The Place" to go for professional portraits and photography. The front of this card was made with permission of the individual and used for advertising purposes in order to show off the kind of work they were capable of. Or this particular person "of means" possibly had a bunch of these made and sent them to friends, relatives and/or business associates. They were an "upscale" business that catered to the "well to do".
