Florence Boyd posed for this cabinet card portrait in Chicago, Illinois. She is identified, in pencil, on the reverse of the photograph. The photographer is listed simply as “Boyd”. Perhaps, Florence, is married to the photographer. It is also possible that the pair may be related in some other fashion. A Samuel Boyd was a photographer in Chicago between 1887 and 1893. Earlier, he operated a studio in Cleveland, Ohio (1897 and 1900). All attempts to find further information about Samuel and Florence Boyd have been fruitless. Therefore, there is no confirmation that Florence Boyd actually slept with the photographer after the portrait. This cabinet card photograph is in very good condition.

  1. Samuel Boyd, my ggg uncle was b in Hamilton, Ont, CA in 1857. This Florence could well be his niece Florence Boyd who was b in 1871 in Canada. Her married name was McIntire and she lived in the Chicago area and raised her children there. Sam was married to Mary and later to Jessie her sister. I have studio prints from Chi and Cle of him and wives.
