This cabinet card features two young girls posing in front of a nicely landscaped house. The house may actually be just part of a house, and  serve as a prop inside the photographic studio of  Mr. Denison, in St. Louis, Missouri. One girl, with long braids,  is holding a doll. The second girl is holding something very unusual for a child to be displaying, That is, unless she is an aspiring home builder. This girl is proudly brandishing a 1902 catalog from the William G. Frye Company. This business was located in St. Louis, and sold door, sash, blinds and many types of millwork. In regard to Mr. Denison, no information was found about him except that his Chouteau Avenue address (about 1900) was followed by a move to 1452 Cass Avenue (about 1906), also in St. Louis.
