1886 Men of Hubbard, Texas

Step back in time to January 24, 1886, in Hubbard. These are the boys and men you would see working and walking the streets, going in the shops and possibly the several saloons! This was an important day for them as you can see they dressed up and they all have their fancy watches and chains (a fashion at the time). They all probably worked hard, but took a Saturday afternoon off to take their photograph at the studio of J. E. Taulman. (Joseph E. Taulman Collection, Dolph Briscoe Center for American History, University of Texas at Austin)

Handwritten on back “Ottie Taulman, Percy Bryan, Zac Wilson, Geo. W. Bishop, Eddie Taulman, John Dunn. Hubbard City, Texas. Jan. 24th 1886”.
