This photo appears to be of Rev. John Edmond, D.D., the first minister of Islington congregation of the United Presbyterian Church in Highbury. A later portrait of him by John Archibald Alexander Berrie is in the collection of Harris Manchester College, University of Oxford, England.

Rev. Edmond is my great-great uncle and came to the U.S. in 1871 to dedicate a Presbyterian church his brothers founded in Claremont, Minnesota.
