Woman and Child and Man in Masonic Regalia


Woman and Child and Man in Masonic Regalia


These cased tintypes show a woman with a baby and a man wearing a sash and a Masonic apron. Together, these images likely depict a family. For their portraits to make a good impression, the subjects wore their most fashionable clothing. After the portraits were taken, the photographer highlighted the woman’s brooch and the decoration on the man’s sash and apron with gold paint.
