AN OFFICER AND HIS FAMILY POSE FOR THEIR PORTRAIT IN A NO-FRILLS CARRIAGE

by bmarshphd
OFFICER 2

This unusual cabinet card captures an officer and his family posing for their portrait as they sit in a no frills carriage. The officer is joined in the photograph by two young women and a baby. He is supporting the baby with his right hand to keep her balanced as she stands on the floorboards. Presumably, one of these ladies is his wife but his relationship to the second woman is unclear. The subjects of this photograph are unidentified. The name of the photographer and the setting of this image are also unknown.  Perhaps a cabinet card gallery visitor can identify the nationality of the officer by looking at his uniform. Please leave a comment if you know his nationality. I believe this cabinet card is unusual because I have seen very few cabinet card images that feature close-up views of individuals sitting in carriages. More standard are photographs of carriages, coaches, and their occupants taken at a long distance.
