As an aside .... Does anyone know the significance of the feathers dangling from his button?

That looks like a length of chain to me. Rather in the style of the cords worn by ADCs.

The medal in the centre, under his chin, looks like Silver Medal for Bravery 2nd Class
The third one, which ruskie suggested might be a 1909 medal, could possibly be The Prague Militia Medal 1866
Can't identify the others at the moment.

The design on the back is typically 1870's & possibly into the early 80's but I wouldn't put it more recent than that.

The fotorever site is very interesting, does it just show examples of the different photography studios?  Is it limited to studios from certain countries?  For example, I noticed in the introduction it mentions Atelier, that would be the photographer correct?  I have photos with this name on them, mainly from Austria though.

Atelier in this context means Studio.

Ah, okay, I understand, so this image means the photographer is Heinrich Harmsen.  The names listed on the site are of photographers.  I just want to make sure I understand how that site is set up, google translate only works so well.  :)
