Photograph of group of Independent Order of Odd Fellows wearing sashes, collars and jewels of office, in lodge room. Reverse has no markings.


An unknown photographer captured this group of Odd Fellows in their lodge. Lit by oil lamps and ornamented with patterned wallpaper, the room contained chairs to accommodate members, a table that could serve as an altar, and a large piece of furniture in the back that was likely an organ. A framed print featuring emblems and the mottos of Odd Fellowship and a printed poster illustrating regalia used by the group decorate two of the lodge room’s walls.
