Herbert Loyal Edminster was a “Harness Maker” in 1900 so this picture of him with a strong looking, beautiful horse may be related to his occupation. We really don’t know. Herbert appears to be between 40 and 50 years old at the time this picture was taken, if so we can date it somewhere around 1900-1910, probably in Kansas.
