This cabinet card features a group portrait of five members of the Salvation Army. Four men and a woman, most of them wearing Salvation Army badges, pose for an unknown photographer at an unknown location. Three of the men are holding their uniform hats while the woman member is holding a tambourine and wearing her hat. The man on the left in the back row has a special hat (perhaps he holds higher rank than the others) and is wearing a sweater that has embroidered letters that say “Salvation Army” and a religious motto, “It is Finished”. The hats display a slogan that appears to say “Prepare to Meet Thy God”.  The Cabinet Card Gallery has a large collection of Salvation Army photographs which can be viewed by clicking on the category “Salvation Army”.
