Original late-1890s cabinet card showing James Deane Avery and his oxen, taken by Patch of Sherburne Falls, MA. 

For fifty years Avery made his home in Buckland, Mass., carrying on most successfully a large farm and became especially well known as a breeder of fancy stock. His big oxen were famous, exhibits for many years at the New England County Fairs.

This cabinet card is a gelatin silver image on a 6.5" x 4.25" mount. Blank back. Some light silvering and minor waviness to the mount, otherwise very good.
