Are these men members of the UPDIKE, HOLSTEIN or PETERSON families?
Why are they wearing sashes with photographs in them?

men with sashes

~ What could be the significance of the sashes? ~

       This photo was contributed by "Elayne" who believes these men in the photograph are relatives. The photo was taken by J.V. Dabbs in Fort Scott, Kansas probably around 1889-1890.

       What is the significance of these sashes that contain old cabinet card photos? Was this a common way to display family photographs? Who could these people be?

If you recognize any of these people or know anything about sashes such as these,
please contact Elayne at the following e-mail address:
