FASHIONABLE YOUNG COUPLE IN PARKERSBURG, IOWA

PARKERSBURG COUPLE_0004A young fashionably dressed couple pose for their portrait at the Byerly studio in Parkersburg, Iowa. The young man is holding a rolled up magazine or newspaper. The young woman is wearing a large ribbon. It looks like a ribbon that one might be awarded as a prize. The photographer, Orison Byerly (1836-?), operated a studio in Parkersburg in the 1880′s and 1890′s. He was born in Ohio and learned photography as a young man in Dubuque, Iowa under the tutelage of Frank Pickerel.

  1. They look happy. – There’s one of those ribbons again.

    It seems a common pose for the male to be seated with the female at his shoulder. – No reason for this, I guess. – Does anyone know?
