Editorial comment on this plate:

Our photogravure frontispiece is from a 4 x 5 negative by Mr. O.J. Bailey, of Peoria, Ill.
It is a group of his own cattle made at “Richland Farm,” near Olney, Ill., being a snap-shot with a hand camera.
The attention of the animals was attracted by a little girl with her collie dog. This accounts for the intensely attentive look of the cattle. The dog also assisted in the grouping of the cows. The plate was developed by Mr. Bailey with hydrochinon.
