anonymous, 3.5 x 4" plate in an embossed leather case. A great studio image, with a solar reflector making a strange mottled "saucer" over the heads of the three sitters. The middle gentleman bears a resemblance to Cornelius Cole, California U.S. representative and senator during the Civil War and immediately afterwards.
