need help identifying photo - possible Tully or Sullivan descendant in Hamilton

Does anyone here has knowledge of photographers' studios in the city of Hamilton from the 1870s through the early 1900s? I have a photo from the collection of my Tully relative (who emigrated from Ontario to Chicago in the US). I don't know who the subject of the photo is, but the picture was taken at Farmer Brothers photographers on 10 King Street W in Hamilton.

If anyone has access to a city directory and could tell me the years that Farmer Brothers photographers was in business at that location in Hamilton, it would help me in identifying which relative this might be. This may have been a cousin from the Tully line who lived near Hamilton (for a while in Paris Village), or it might be someone from the maternal Sullivan line.

I have the actual photo and further explanation posted at

Thanks in advance for any help with this.
