Photo Number 1531

This is a Cabinet Card from Craig’s Collection.
Willie Alec Porter Pink Back CP
Willie Alec Porter
This cabinet card has a pink back, pale colors were used form 1873 to 1910.  Some have one color on the front of the card and another on the back of the card.   This one may have had a pink front and it may be faded.
My first impression of this photo is that it was taken about 1880 and the young man was about 15 years old. 
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.

Update from Iggy:
William Porter born December 2, 1867 was a clerk and banker before entering into Real Estate and Livestock.  He married Kathryn Stephens August 15 1892 and they had a daughter named Dorothy Nell. 

His only child, a daughter named Dorothy Miller nee Porter, married Leffler Beguette Miller, they had two daughters, Margery Dorette Brown nee Miller (14 Apr 1922 - 6 Sep 1992) and Marinell Coleman nee Miller (15 Sep 1926 - ?) married Clifford Coleman, lived in Millbrae, CA.

  1. I think this is William Alexander Porter - born December 2, 1867 in Black's Station, Yolo County, California. His biography is on page 794 of http://books.google.com/books?id=PnAUAAAAYAAJ&lpg=PA3&ots=97XXCX5fYz&dq=%22william%20alec%20Porter%22%20yolo&pg=PA784#v=onepage&q=%22william%20alec%20Porter%22%20yolo&f=false
