I love this old photo of my great great grandfather Anfinson at a political rally. He’s the one holding the flag. What a motley crew of citizens out and about supporting their favorite politicians. And lest you think there are no women involved in the political process, take a closer gander behind the mule to the left. A covey of proper women folk are gathered.
If they can handle the maintenance and advancement of American democracy, then I’m sure we can too.
From my cousin: It’s definitely Cambridge, where he lived:

I think they’re either campaigning for, or celebrating the victory of
Frank Jackson, Governor of Iowa 1893
This would make Anfin about 55 y.o.
