PORTRAIT OF A MENNONITE COUPLE IN ILLINOIS

by bmarshphd

This cabinet card features a portrait of a young Mennonite couple. Note the couples plain style of dress, the young man's beard, and the woman's bonnet.  The reverse of the photograph has an inscription noting that the couple's name is "Mr. and Mrs. D. T. Wagner". An additional note on the verso states "return to Ida Buckingham, Oakley, Illinois". Ida Buckingham (1886-1964) was likely a relative of the pictured couple and possessed the photograph during some period of her life. The photographer of this image is W. H. Farley. He operated photographic studios in Crete, Tampico, and Gibson, Illinois during the 1880's. To view more of his photographs, click on the category "Photographer: Farley".
