This cabinet card portrait features Caddie Johnson in a very fine dress. She is posing for the photographer at the Buckeye Portrait & View Company  at No. 13 North Walnut Street in Canton, Ohio. No further information could be found about Ms. Johnson or the Buckeye Portrait and View Company. However, an explanation of the term “Buckeye” was excavated. The Buckeye is the state tree of Ohio.  (SOLD)

  1. Yes, it’s also the state nickname. Ohio is “The Buckeye State”, like Pennsylvania is “The Keystone State”, California is “The Golden State”, etc.

  2. I’d give this a guess date of early 1880s. I would really need to do some cross referencing to be more certain but I’m on vacation. 🙂

    • I really need to know this little boy riding a horse , his information.How he’s related to me.

      • I listed in the blog entry all I know about the photograph of the little boy riding the horse. Good luck in researching your family

      • Thank you very much and I will take a look at the blog.
