International Order of the Odd Fellows

Title

International Order of the Odd Fellows

Description

Sepia-toned image of a group of men and women arranged inside a large, carpeted room. Note the large book on the podium in the center of the room. The large 'leg-o'-mutton' sleeves and the small topknots in many of the women's hairstyles are typical of styles worn in the early 1880s. Though it does not identify a specific couple, the 'Mother and Dad' referenced in the transcription are most likely George and Josephine Palmateer, parents of the donor. George was a marine engineer, operating out of Portland for many years.
