This cabinet card portrait focuses on four young woman posing at Mulligan Brothers studio in Columbus, Ohio. The four women are likely sisters. They are conservatively or even plainly dressed with the exception of the seated women on the right side of the image. She also appears to be the youngest among the siblings. All of the young ladies are wearing jewelry at or near their collar. The woman standing on the right is wearing a cross. The Cabinet Card Gallery exhibits another cabinet card from the Mulligan studio. To view that photograph, put the name “Mulligan” in the Cabinet Card Gallery’s search box. At one point in their careers, the Mulligan Brothers were in partnership with another photographer. Terry and Patrick Mulligan were in business with John Pfeifer and an 1894 image of their Columbus studio can be seen below. Anthony’s Photographic Bulletin (1894) cited the studio for their fine work that was seen at a photography exhibition.  (SOLD)
