This cabinet card family portrait features a family portrait by the Taft Studio in Saxtons River, Vermont. The family unit consists of intense looking parents and their two sons. The boys are very similar in appearance and may be identical twins. The boys are well dressed in their striped jackets and vests. The parents seem to be older than one might expect to have children the age of these boys. Perhaps the boys are their youngest children and the older siblings are gone from the nest.

Be sure to note that two of Taft’s cabinet cards share an identical backdrop.
