SALVATION ARMY WORKER HOLDING “WAR CRY” NEWSPAPER IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK

A young man wearing a salvation army sweater (note the lettering on the garment), poses for his portrait at the Kopke studio in Brooklyn, New Yok. He is holding two newspapers, one of which is the “War Cry”. The “War Cry” is the official salvation army news publication. Its first publication date in the United States was 1881. I can not identify the second newspaper. Hopefully a member of the cabinet card gallery community (visitors) will be able to assist in identifying the name of the second newspaper.  To view other photographs by Kopke, click on the category “Photographer: Kopke”.
