Yes, that's definitely Wyatt. I'm not 100% certain, but I believe this to be a promo picture from one of his early concert tours where he performed a wide variety of Vernon Dalhart songs. Too bad there is no (known) video of any of the performances. :(

Looks like Mr. Meeker to me, Ramona Baker though would know for certain. I actually use a similar voice when I announce my cylinder records.
