Portrait of a man

Possibly a portrait of Charles, James or Thomas Wright.

Charles Wright was an employee of, 'Payne & Foss', booksellers in London.

James Wright was a footman to the Talbots and a police constable for Lacock.

Thomas Wright was a servant at Lacock. There is a photographic portrait of a man identified as, T. Wright, but none of the extant prints has a very strong image. See, Schaaf 1552.
