TWO SALVATION ARMY LADIES IN NEW YORK CITY

Two young women in Salvation Army uniforms, pose for their portrait at the Carter Art Studio, in New York City, New York. Note that one woman is wearing Salvation Army pins on both collars and that both women are wearing Salvation Army badges at their collar. The woman appear to be in their twenties, and one wonders what motivated them to join the Salvation Army. Did they have religious convictions that drew them to the organization? Were they hoping to help people or change the world in a positive way? Did they see joining the Salvation Army as a way to be able to live in exciting New York City. Unfortunately, the answers to these questions are lost to history. To see a collection of images of other Salvation Army workers;click on the Cabinet Card Gallery’s category “Salvation Army”.

JEWISH MAN IN NEW YORK CITY (MAYBE)

A long bearded gentleman with a black hat poses for his portrait at the studio of H. O. Eichler. It is likely that Eichler was the proprietor of Eichler Artistic Portraits, located at 3 Avenue A, in New York City. However, there is no identifying information about the man in the photograph or the location of the studio. Amazingly, this gentleman could pass for a rabbi or Orthodox Jewish man living in modern day New York City.
