This cabinet card features a rare prop. The photograph captures two young girls swinging on a wooden swing set under the watchful eye of their mother. Although individual swings are not an unusual prop in cabinet card photography, this is the first cabinet card that I have seen which displays an entire swing set. In addition, most cabinet photos of swings are taken in studio, while this image appears to have been taken outside.  Looking at the children’s faces under magnification shows that at least the oldest child appears to be enjoying herself as she poses for this picture. The older girl possesses a big smile. The jury is out on whether the youngest girl is having a good  time. One of the girls appears to have lost her hat. Note the upside down hat on the ground below the swing. Both the name of the photographer of this image, as well as the location of photographer’s studio, is unknown.

  1. That’s not her mother. It’s an older sister.
