This cabinet card features a portrait of a well dressed lady and her pug. The woman is wearing a flower hat and is holding an umbrella with one hand, and petting her dog with the other hand. The photographer is unknown and would likely be known if this image wasn’t glued incorrectly on the card stock. The top of the image is glued to the bottom of the card. The viewer can see some partial printed letters showing above the top of the image. Perhaps the photographer had no card stock with his studio’s name and used old card stock from the studio’s previous owner. The photographer may have intentionally covered up the name and address of the studio so it would not get false credit for producing the image. Incidentally, there seems to be many cabinet card photographs featuring pugs. They must have been a popular breed at the turn of the century and certainly have made a resurgence during recent times.
