I know it’s a bit blurry, but in trying to read the printed words on the bottom I see ___Margie? on the lower left. On the lower right corner I’m fairly certain it says Aberdeen. What do you think?
UPDATE - Thanks to comments by readers, I now know that the photographer's name on the lower left is J. Hardie. I have an address of his business in Aberdeen and the years he was in business.
Note: I am trying to get my cousin to send me a picture or scan of the back of the photograph.
Since we have lots of family on my maternal side, from Aberdeen, this would make sense. But, who is this man?
Background on my family from Aberdeen
My great grandfather, Andrew Charles Milne was born in Aboyne, Aberdeen, Scotland on 8 Feb 1856. He came to the United States via Canada in about 1868, with his sister Mary E. Milne. Both of them eventually settled in Michigan. Andrew is in Detroit by 1877 and in 1880 he marries Susan Anne Gillespie. They have four children, 2 of whom died young. Of the two that survived, Joseph Albert Milne and Irene Marie Milne, both married and had children. Joseph is my grandfather.
Andrew died of Consumption at the young age of 36, on 8 Dec 1892.
Here is a picture that I had restored, of Andrew Charles Milne.

I guess my question is, could that photograph of the unidentified man be a member of Andrew’s family? A father, brother, cousin, in-law?
If you recognize the man in the unidentified photo, please contact me.
