This cabinet card has seen better days. It is quite faded and appears to have been trimmed. The young woman in this photograph poses with a bicycle for an unknown photographer. The subject of this cabinet card image is identified by an inscription on the reverse of the photo. The young lady in the photograph is Miss Mattie Loveday. Preliminary research yielded a disappointingly small amount of information. Here is what we know. The 1900 US census reveals that Miss Loveday was born in 1883 and was a student living in Washington D.C.. She lived with her father (James P. Loveday) and mother (Florence D. Loveday). Also in the home was a 20 year old brother (Arthur), 11 year old sister (Annie), and 7 year old brother (Leo). Her father and older brother both worked as clerks. The brother was also a soldier. Mattie was 17 years old at the time of the 1900 census and it is my guess that this photograph was taken close to that year.  SOLD
