Sepia-toned Masonic Knights Templar carte-de-visite photograph. Three-quarter length seated portrait of a bearded man. He is facing toward the camera, but his chair is turned toward the right. He is wearing a dark, buttoned frock coat with a jewel on the left side, dark pants, and Knights Templar gauntlets, sash or baldric, and sword belt. His gauntlets are white; there is a cross visible on the cuff of the gauntlet on his left hand. His sash is white, with a gray border, a star, and a Maltese cross. His sword belt is black, with a rounded buckle. The sword is suspended from the belt on his left side; he is holding onto the hilt with his left hand. In his right hand, he holds a black chapeau-de-bras with black and white feathers. The arm of the chair is padded and fringed. Handwritten on the back in pencil is the signature "John Price," followed by the text "Fraternal Order / Knight(s?) Templar / in full regalia." Printed in black on the back is "R. Stevenson, / Photographic Artist, / 325 Commercial Street, / Atchison Kansas."
