Carte de visite portrait of carte de visite portrait of Thomas Guthrie D.D. (1803-1873).
Guthrie was a Scottish divine and philanthropist. He studied at Edinburgh University for both surgery and anatomy but then concentrated on Theology. Possessed of a commanding presence and voice, and a remarkably effective and picturesque style of oratory, he became perhaps the most popular preacher of his day in Scotland, and was associated with many forms of philanthropy, especially temperance and ragged schools, of which he was a founder.
