Cabinet photograph, possibly a graduation photograph, of a young man identified on the reverse as J. Ralph Mulford. The photograph was taken by the W. E. Service studio of 4 East Commerce Street, Bridgeton, New Jersey.
From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:
Joseph Ralph Mulford was born November 1, 1873 in Fairfield Township, New Jersey, son of Albert G. Mulford and Olive M. (Chesner) Mulford.
According to the 1910 Census, which notes how many years people had been in their present marriage, it was about 1902 that Ralph married Laura M. Fox. Laura, who was born about 1877, and Ralph had at least two children.
