A young couple poses for their portrait at the Sunbeam Gallery in Peoria, Illinois. The man and woman in this photograph are showing signs of happiness. Both of them are exhibiting a half smile rather than the typical intense expressions generally seen in cabinet card photography. The pair appear to be resting by a swinging wrought iron gate. The photographer of this image is Max Erler (about 1857-1936). He is listed in the US censuses of 1880 through 1920 as a photographer. He began his own photography business in 1881 and married his wife, Jennie Harris Erler (about 1861-1934).  in 1883.
