The Railroad Agent

I purchase this Ninth Plate Ruby Ambrotype around 2010. He came in a half case with badly scratched glass but the image was in relatively good shape. I’ve cleaned it up a little digitally. The cut of his clothes suggest to me that it was taken about 1860 or shortly after. There was no identification in the case of subject or photographer.
