William Henry Adams moved to Greenville, TX, 01 Aug 1893 and worked as a photographer until he died in 1936. No records were found to show he was a photographer before that time but perhaps he worked for another studio.

The photographer's name is embossed in the center at the bottom and is barely legible here. Unfortunately there is no studio address on the cabinet card here so the date cannot be narrowed further. The style of the card would suggest sometime between 1890 and 1900 but some blank card stock may have lasted a decade later.
