Original cabinet card showing a fireman in uniform. On the back, it is signed:

From Brother George Conklin
To Brother Edwin Tallmadge.

In very light pencil, there's also a date: September 1, 1887.

The use of the word "brother" would indicate they were members of a fraternal order. I did find a George Conklin and Edwin Tallmadge listed as members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, which was a mutual benefit society for workers employed as firemen for steam locomotives.

About 6.5" x 4.25". Some foxing and light soiling. No creases.

Shipping: First Class (flat photo mailer). Boxed Priority Mail also available at checkout.
