    Does anyone know what this style photograph is called? I’m thinking this is the cast of a play? A drama ensemble? This was found with photos ranging from the 1870s through 1910s - any guess on age? Larger format, mounted on 11 x 14 board. “Finley Chicago” in bottom right. Thanks for your help!

      Samuel S. Finley was born in Wilmington, moved to Reading Pennsylvania and married there. He moved to Chicago and died of influenza there in 1918.
