Dr. Thomas H. Cochran and friends,
  (New Ipswich, N.H.); sixth-plate


I was able to identify the image through the sign on the wall, which reads "T. Cochran / Physician". Searching census records, I found only one doctor with that name at the time, and he was Dr. Thomas H. Cochran, who earned his medical degree from Dartmouth. In an old book about the New Ipswich area I discovered a drawing of Dr. Cochran: he looks exactly like the man in the front, second from left, leaning on a cane. In fact, the drawing is so close it could have been made from this image.
