A young couple poses for their portrait at an unknown studio and locale. The pair are well dressed and holding their hats. The woman is wearing a ring and earrings. Their style of clothing provides a clue that they are likely being photographed somewhere in the western area of the United States sometime in the 1880’s or 1890’s. A pencilled inscription on the bottom front of the cabinet card names the couple as “Cyrus Bechtel and wife”.

  1. There is a tree on Ancestry with a single photo of a Cyrus Bechtel (born in Canada and settled in North Dakota) that looks very similar to this man. The hair is parted on the opposite side, but the image could have been reversed. In the tree, he was married to Elmira Jane Stull. Of course, all this presupposes correct tree information.
