Isn’t this an excellent photograph? The older couple is still very handsome. Due to the flowers pinned to their clothes I feel this must be an important event for them – such as an anniversary celebration.
From their clothing I would date this photo to late 1880’s or early 1890’s – the high collar of the woman’s dress, and her slightly enhanced upper sleeves are from that date, as well as the man’s high-buttoned suit coat. From the bottom of the card we see they were from Geneva, Indiana. A Mr. Gregg took the photo, but I could find nothing about him.
The foil stamped imprint of the photographer’s name dates this photo to 1890-1900, which corresponds to the date of their clothing.
