Anyone have a "F Ahrens" Photographer in their line?

I have an old cabinet card that is unidentified, and i'm trying to figure out who these people are in it and which branch of my family they belong to (they are NOT Ahrens, that is the photographers name)

The only clue i have is that the photographers mark is "F. Ahrens, Photo-Artist" No town, no state given.

I would guess the photo was taken in the 1870's - 1880's, but i'm pretty bad at dating these puppies.

Has anyone working on their Ahren family line come across one who is listed as a photographer in a census in the 1800's? If i knew where the photo was taken, it would help narrow down which line of the family this came from.

Sure appreciate your thoughts,
Jean -
