The sitter would appear to be a Physician who had a practice at 560 Fifth Avenue in 1916 according to R.L. Polk & Co. Trow’s New York City Directory, 1916, vol. 179, page 374. Which also confirms the home address given in Muller-Ury’s handwriting on the stretcher in pencil ‘Dr Wm Carr 375 Park’. There is some damage to the canvas edges and close to the signature.
