Mrs M. Whitehill posed for this cabinet card portrait produced by the Cook studio in Boston, Massachusetts. She was a nicely dressed and pretty young woman. Her name was gleaned from information possessed by the previous owner of this photograph. I could not find further information about her without knowing her full first name. L. W. Cook was a prolific photographer who began his career during the cdv era. City directories reveal that Cook had various addresses in Boston over the span of his photographic career. He used the 145 Tremont studio at least between 1874 and 1884. He also occupied three other Washington Street addresses besides the Washington location listed on this image.  (SOLD)
