This Cabinet Card photograph captures two angry sisters posing at McKinnon’s Portraits, in Jacksonville, Illinois. These sisters do not seem happy; in fact, the sister with the darker dress is displaying quite a scowl. Writing on the reverse of the card indicates that the women are sisters. Their names are  Mrs Annie Knight of London, England, and Mrs Agnes Jackson of Jacksonville, Illinois. Perhaps the woman are in conflict, or are just having an aggravating experience at the photographic studio. The women are beautifully dressed for the taking of the photograph and wearing flowers to enhance their appearance.

  1. Heh, I remember my sister deciding that the two of us would have photos taken for our parents. A fine idea… except neither one of liked being photographed.

    There were a couple of photos in the batch that looked just like this, angry scowls and all, updated to the mid-1980s.
