This cabinet card, by Eclipse Studios in Jamestown, New York, captures two very young girls at play. The girls are sitting in miniature chairs and a small cloth covered table, drinking tea from a miniature china tea set. The children have serious expressions as they sit down for tea. The photographer is G. H. Monroe who’s studio was located at the the corner of West Third and Washington Streets, in Jamestown. The Professional and Amateur Photographer (1900) reported that George H. Monroe was an officer with the Columbian Dry Plate Company. Research also revealed that he was the photographer of a number of postcards produced in the Jamestown area.
