This cabinet card portrait features a gentleman in the full uniform of his unidentified fraternal organization. He is wearing a plumed hat and white gloves. He is holding a sword. The man, like many of his era, was likely proud of his participation in the organization. Proud enough to want to be photographed in his uniform. He likely displayed the image at home and shared copies with friends and family. The photographer of this cabinet card image, Arthur Rugg, has a number of other photographs that can be seen in the Cabinet Card Gallery. Click on the category “Photographer: Rugg” to view the images and to learn more about him. Mr. Rugg was a scoundrel. Judging by Rugg’s images in the gallery, he was also a talented photographer who had a propensity to take relatively close-up photographs.
