A very cute child is photographed for this cabinet card by Hartley of Chicago, Illinois. The child appears to be a boy with incredible curls. He is wearing a very large bow tie, or ascot. Edward F. Hartley (1847-1887) was born in Wadsworth, Ohio; and became a photographer is Jacksonville, Illinois in 1873. In 1876 he moved his trade to Chicago and was quite successful in establishing a business. A photographic journal of his time reports that he underpriced his photographs and as a result, he was not included in many professional photographic associations and won few awards for his work.
