This cabinet card photograph features a portrait of a very pretty young nurse, or maid. She clearly is clearly is wearing a uniform. She seems very serious as she poses for her photograph at the Louis H. Rudolph studio in Chicago, Illinois. She has a wide-eyed expression and seems very attentive to the photographer. A drawing of the photographer’s studio (street view) can be seen on the reverse of the photograph. A sign in the window of the drawn building indicates that, at the time, cabinet cards sold for two dollar per dozen photographs. A listing of Chicago’s early photographers reports that Rudolph operated a studio between 1892 and 1900. He was born in 1871 and married Henrietta S. C. Ziehn in 1895.  (SOLD)
