    Description

    William McKinley: Canton, Ohio Front Porch Mounted Photographs. Pair of 12" x 10" photos taken during McKinley's "Front Porch" campaign of 1896. One shot shows a line-up of delegates flanking the candidate, all wearing flags, buttons or ribbons, many of which are recognizable (such as the jumbo brass shell McKinley Parade badge). Lanterns hang from the eaves of the porch. The second photo shows a much larger group with people of all ages, many of whom were no-doubt Civil War veterans. Two men hold McKinley canes. Many wear ribbons. Most have some sort of label or index card tucked in the sweatband of their hats. McKinley stands in the center rear.
    From the collection of Ed Sullivan.
