This Cabinet Card photograph captures an American soldier posing for the camera of Cassey & Riley of Lansing, Michigan. The soldier appears to be of the Spanish American War era but there is no identifying information available. The soldier appears to be an officer and is assuming a Napoleonic type pose with his hand strategically placed under his coat. The photography studio of Cassey & Riley has a photograph in the Ransom Eli Olds collection (Oldsmobile founder). An 1892 photograph by the studio shows the inventor Olds with his experimental Olds Gasoline Steam Carriage.

  1. I just want to say, I have this same photo in my family history book. Same uniform and pose with hand under his coat, same Cassey & Riley of Lansing, MI….but with no name. I always believed him to be Wesley McCave.
