Who is the man with the beard in Houseworth Stereoview #1351?

Shen-Chih(Sam) Cheng asks:

Houseworth Stereoview #1351. "Wood Train and Chinamen in Bloomer Cut."

One question on this photo: The standing beard man in white robe of the photo, is that Hart himself?

Yes, that could very well be a photographer, but don't know if it is Hart or even if Hart took that Houseworth stereoview. Several of the Houseworth images were variants of images also published by Hart, but Houseworth #1351 does not seem to be one of those.

It seems unlikely to me that the man in the light colored jacket in the Houseworth photo is Hart – I'd expect him to be behind the camera. I suppose it is possible that the photo was taken by an assistant. but for that matter, we don't even know just who the photographer was for this photo – we know that Houseworth employed several different photographers – and the photos that we know were Harts and published by Houseworth were generally taken earlier.
