This family portrait cabinet card was photographed by E. C. Pratt of Pratts Studio in Batavia, Illinois. It is difficult to determine the family constellation in this image. Perhaps the photograph includes a young adult woman, her mother, and her grandparents. Note the women’s dresses; they are quite varied and pretty.

  1. I do have a bunch of cabinet photos from Batavia, Illinois by Pratt and other studios. I live in Sweden and relatives emigrated to the US in the late 1880’s. Somebody brought the photos back to Sweden where we now try to figure who is portrayed.
