Portrait of Robert E. Orr in his full, IIU (Illinois Industrial University) military school uniform. Signed in pen on the back:

Affectionate Regards
to Uncle Joseph C. Orr
By Robert E. Orr
Aug't '81

Life is but a little while, a little show, a turning of the hand

Orr was born in August 1862 and graduated from IIU in 1883 with a degree in Civil Engineering. A 1900 census record shows him working as a civil engineer in Evanston, Illinois.

Original 6.5" x 4.25" cabinet card in very good overall antique condition. Rubbed out, scuffed signature on the front.. looks like he probably changed his mind and decided to sign the back!

Shipping: Choice of First Class (flat photo mailer) or boxed Priority.
