PROUD COUPLE AND A DIPLOMA IN VAN WERT, OHIO

A young couple poses for their portrait in this cabinet card photographed by J. F. Rank of Van Wert, Ohio. The man in the image is holding a rolled document that appears to be a diploma. He is dressed in formal clothing which suggests that the portrait may be a graduation picture. He has a fine handle bar mustache and is wearing a pocket watch. The woman in this picture is nicely dressed and well adorned with jewelry. Jeremiah F. Rank (1847-1913) was born in Shelby, Ohio. He learned the trade of photography from I. S. Hartsock in Van Wert, Ohio, in 1872. After being trained, he quickly bought Hartsock’s studio and operated the business until 1892 when he sold the gallery. After traveling around the United States for two years, he opened galleries in Schuyler and Lincoln, Nebraska. He eventually returned to Van Wert and opened another studio there. In 1874, Rank was married to Mary I. McBride of Oskaloosa, Iowa. To view other photographs by this photographer, click on the category “Photographer: Rank”.

THREE GRADUATES POSE IN PARIS………………(PARIS, KENTUCKY)

Three young women pose for their graduation portrait in Paris, Kentucky. Judging their age by their appearance, the girls are likely graduating from high school or college. It is interesting to note that each girls graduation gown is slightly different from the others. It is also notable that there is no backdrop in this image; the photographer used curtains instead. Perhaps the photograph was taken outside of the photographer’s studio and he took the curtains with him to the site of the graduation. This image was produced by a photographer named Gibson. Research reveals no additional biographical information concerning Mr. Gibson.
