GIRL AT GATE_0009A cute little girl with a sweet smile pushes open the gate in this studio photograph by E. E. Van Epps. The child wears an expression that shows her excitement about obtaining a photographic portrait. This scalloped cabinet card was created in one of four studios operated by Van Epps in Kansas. The studios were located in the towns of Atwood, Colby, Hoxie and Sharon Springs.

  1. awwww, isn’t she sweet?
    I wonder why she was wearing such a long dress, very unusefull. Maybe for a wedding or another ceremony?

  2. I found this same photograph, except mine shows the wear and fade of time. I believe the child to be a distant relative from the area around Colby Kansas. I would be grateful for any information that might be available, or ideas on how to investigate further. Thanks!

    • It is interesting that you have the same photograph. Is it exactly the same or is it a slightly different pose? In regard to further information about this image, I have a couple of suggestions. First, do an intense internet search to learn more about the photographer. Second, you can contact the Kansas Historical Society as well as the historical societies of the four towns where Van Epps conducted his photography business. Good luck with your research and if you turn up some interesting information, please let us know via leaving another comment in this space. Thanks for visiting the cabinet card gallery and leaving a comment.
