pw, it's looking like several of these folk have a theological connection, so I'd put my money on this little extract from wikipedia about a certain professor of latin at Queens:
 

 "The Most Rev Charles Parsons Reichel, DD, MA was an Anglican Bishop and author in the 19th century.  He was born in 1816, educated at Trinity College, Dublin and ordained in 1847.  After a curacy at St. Mary's Church, Dublin he was Professor of Latin at Queen's College, Belfast from 1850 to 1864.  During his career he held incumbencies at Trim, Mullingar and Clonmacnoise.  He was consecrated Bishop of Meath in 1885, a position he held until his death on 29 March 1894."
 
 
He definitely seems to be wearing either professorial and/or church vestments in the photo. And presumably this was taken in the Studio in Donegall Place so I imagine the desk, books and inkwells were props deliberately chosen to suggest a serious man of learning.
 
Lovely photo. :)

I reckon this is a businessman.  There are references to a William Valentine in the 1860s who is a JP, chairman of the Belfast Steamship Company.  Same man is listed as a Director of the Belfast and Northern Counties Railway (guess who is listed as the engineer - one Charles Lanyon!) and also as Director of the Belfast and County Down Railway, Northern Bank, and William Renshaw & Co.

Thanks bobdenn I think you are probably right mant looks & sounds good.Most of the people on the list have some sort of connection to the church of ireland,as was Emilie sophia Lepper that owned these photos and her sister Elizabeth Pratt Lepper.Elizabeth married a Francis Price at St Anns,Belfast,Church of Ireland.I have a photo of st anns from similiar time span,and many other buildings of which i'm sure they look exactly the same today.They are all from same album and all James Magil.(will post when i get time,not sure whether i should put them on pictures of belfast forum).
Not sure you're right about Dr Reichel,i think CMcG is probably more correct with his dates.
