The cabinet card at the left is labeled as being a copy. In reality this could have been made any time either the father Simon or the son Julian, was working as a photographer. However, there is one mention of copying in a city directory listing for Julian in 1923.

But wait, there’s more...

Nathan L Stein
(Nov 1857 - 1921)

Nathan Stein lived at the same time as Simon L. and son Julian, in the same city, Milwaukee, WI, and was also a photographer. But Nathan Stein seems totally unrelated genetically to Simon Stein. However, he could be the Stein credited for the cabinet card here.
