Sam Weiss
According to Harvey Bank this photo was in an album in the house of his grandmother Lillian Weiss Lefkowitz of Brooklyn, NY.
Lillian was a  daughter of Solomon and Leibe Hannah nee:Binder Weiss, as was Sadie Weiss Bergold who wrote the 1962 letter below.
I therefore think that the Samuel Weiss pictured here was born circa 1864 and is of the generation of his brother Solomon Weiss and siblings. 
He is not the Sam Weiss mentioned in the letter below who died in 1962 (circa 1887-1962)  -- a son of Jacob (Yaakov Yitzchak) Weiss.
 Solomon and Jacob were brothers and had 5 additional siblings.  These were the seven children of Benjamin Weiss and wife (?) nee: Werner Weiss.

Page 2 of 2 of July, 1962 letter from Sadie Weiss Bergold
In this 1962 letter by my grand aunt Sadie Weiss Bergold (signed Grandma), she writes of her first cousin Sam Weiss and relatives
from Scranton, Pennsylvania and Canada.  I believe the San Weiss in this letter is a son of Jacob (Yaakove Yitzchak) Weiss
and not the Samuel Weiss pictured above who would be his uncle.
