The little girls seen in this cabinet card photograph are adorable. Perhaps these identically dressed girls are twins. Note the black belt that each of them are wearing. Is the belt part of their dresses or is it a photographer’s accessory to hold the girls safely on a chair. The photographer of this image is A. J. Dusseau. His studio was in Butte, which was located in the Montana Territory (1864-1889). Dusseau was born in Vermont in 1842. His employment before becoming a photographer included being an engineer on a steamboat and working as a musician. In 1874 he operated a photography studio in Deer Lodge, Montana and he then moved his business to Butte in 1877. The Cabinet Card Gallery has a number of his photographs which can be seen by clicking on the category “Photographer: Dusseau”.  (SOLD)
