This cabinet card photograph features an adorably dressed young woman standing beside her bicycle. She looks so pretty in her riding outfit. Note her hat, bow tie, gloves, high boots and patterned dress. This is certainly a terrific image of a bicycle rider and her bike. There is a badge on the front of the bike (under the handlebars) that likely identifies the manufacturer of the bike. I believe that someone knowledgeable about bicycle companies existing during the cabinet card era could determine the name of the company that built this bike. There also seems to be some artwork on the bar underneath the bike’s seat. This photograph was taken by a photographer named Matthews but the location of the studio is unknown.   SOLD
