Group of friends, tintype, 1880s

A studio portrait of four women and three men

This group includes four women in shirt-waisted clothing, their thick hair tied up in buns, and three men in suits, their hair parted down the middle. One man, thinner than the others, is seated in a wicker wheelchair in the center of the group, head turned toward the camera. All have ribbons pinned to their clothing and are touching and rubbing shoulders together.
