Gift in memory of Jacques Noel Jacobsen
Black and white fraternal Independent Order of Odd Fellows carte-de-visite photograph. Full length portrait of unidentified man standing and wearing dark coat and pants, dark shoes, white shirt, and fraternal collar and apron. Collar is dark, with a lighter border fringe; it has wreathlike floral garland motifs on each side, and a three-link chain clasp. Apron is also dark, with a lighter border and fringe. There is an all-seeing eye on the flap of the apron, and a five-pointed star in a wreath on the main portion. The man has a beard and mustache, and is resting his left hand on a table or pedestal with a tablecloth. The photograph has a double-lined gilt border. There is no text on the back side.
