Lodge Master


Lodge Master


Dressed in his regalia, this man stands before a chart that depicts the first three Masonic degrees. His jewel of office, his top hat, and the gavel in his hand all provide clues that he served as his lodge’s Master. Close examination shows that either the photographer or his client placed special importance on these features—someone drew the jewel and the square and compasses on the apron onto the negative before the photographer printed the picture.
