This vintage cabinet card photograph features a couple holding hands and posing for a photographer. Their style of clothing leads me to believe that they are Mennonites. The photographer of this photo is W. H. Farley. He operated photographic studios in Crete, Tampico, and Gibson, Illinois during the 1880’s. The cabinet card gallery has several photos by Farley. One of these images also is of a Mennonite couple. To see Farley’s other photos, place his name in the search box.   (SOLD)
