Who is Duryea?

I'm wondering if anyone knows who "Duryea" is? I've been unable to verify the name of this photographer. I believe it might have ben Sanford Duryea, but I'm not positive. I would like this info to help me date the photo (1884 is a guess).

    I think I've been able to determine that there are 2 different Duryea studios who produced cabinet cards. There is a Sandbord Bennett Duryea who had studios at 253 Fulton Street, Brooklyn (later [?]expanded to 251&253 Fulton).

    Then there was William H. Duryea who had a studio at 201 Sixth Ave. Manhattan. He has an entry in the NYC Business Directories for 1886, & I have a card dated 1875.

    Oh, the card above is the Manhattan studio (William C. Duryea) William H. (below) is a typo, sorry.
