USA
carte-de-visite
Gift in memory of Jacques Noel Jacobsen
2008.038.39

Sepia-toned fraternal carte-de-visite photograph. Full length portrait of unidentified man standing and wearing a dark coat and pants, dark shoes, white shirt, bow tie, and Independent Order of Odd Fellows apron and collar. Collar is dark with an ornately embroidered floral design; has a light border and fringe. Apron is dark with light border and fringe around both flap and main portion. On the flap is an all-seeing eye; there is a five-pointed star in a wreath on the main part of the apron. The man has a mustache and a beard. His left hand rests on a table covered by a dark, decorated tablecloth. On the back of the card, the letters "KAUA" are handwritten in pencil. There are losses in the two upper corners of this carte-de-visite, as the corners were rounded off at some time.
