This early cabinet card full portrait features a pretty young woman wearing a long and fancy dress. The photographer’s name who produced this photograph is on the wall behind the subject and the name is crossed out. Why the name is blacked out is a mystery. Perhaps the studio was recently purchased and the old photographer’s name was on the wall. Most cabinet cards advertise the photographer’s name and location on the bottom or the reverse of the card. This is the first time I’ve seen the name of a studio incorporated into the image. It certainly is a creative mode of advertising.   (SOLD)

  1. Perhaps a new photographer took over the studio, using his predecessors space and props?
