Portrait by an artist

I acquired this photo on eBay some time ago, which was taken by an “artist” from Stokes Studio in Campbellsville, (Kentucky?), sometime in the early 1900s. A number of photo studios bearing this studio’s name prospered around the country, especially around the 1920s. The enclosure for the photo reads generically “Portrait by an Artist.” I don’t know who the gentleman in the photos is, but he apparently worked in a telegraph office. The typewriter is perhaps an Underwood? (If you know, please comment.)

The original, untouched photo is below:
