HUNTER, SHOTGUN, AND DOG MEET RACCOON: RACCOON MEETS ITS MAKER

This cabinet card is a hunting image photographed by Morrison (1848-?) of Bowling Green, Ohio. The hunter is posed with his hunting dog and his shotgun. Also making an appearance in this image is the raccoon that met its early demise as the prey of the hunt.  The dog in the photograph appears to be a hound. The street address of the photographers studio was the Kabig Block. Robert Prescott Morrison worked as a photographer in Fostoria, Ohio around 1865 and began operating in Bowling Green in 1870 or 1878 depending on what source is believed. He was still active in his career in 1900.  His wife, Belinda (Linnie) Ball Morrison worked as a negative retoucher during their early married days. Morrison was a veteran of the civil war. He served in Company H of the 133rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiment.
