Who is Sam Butterworth?

The back of the photo show here identifies the individual as Sam Butterworth and was definitely taken in Blackburn, Lancashire, England.

The photographer was Wilson Jennings. Wilson Jennings appears to have been in business in Blackburn from at least 1905 until at least 1924.

The only Sam Butterworth that I have in my tree was born about 1837. If this picture was taken in 1905 at the earliest, it's unlikely that it could be the same person.

Can anyone identify an approximate date for when the picture might be been taken? Or how old Mr. Butterworth might be in the image?
