An unidentified man sits in front of a hanging quilt. The ribbon fastened to his jacket collar indicates he is the 153rd Good Hope Council member for the Junior Order of the United American Mechanics, an American fraternal order. It began as a youth affiliation of the Order of United American Mechanics, but seceded to become its own organization and eventually absorbed its parent order. Originally, it was an Anti-Catholic, Nativist group, but eventually abandoned this position and became a general fraternal benefit society open to people regardless of creed, race or sex.
