Thomas Horton Hare was a photographer from 1868 until he died in 1916. There are no city directories available for Hamilton, MO, so specific addresses are not possible. It’s a safe guess that the cabinet cards came after his Daguerrian period, 1880.

The style of the card at the left would indicate late 1890 to 1910.
