A shapely (corseted) young woman poses for her portrait at the Banks Brothers studio in Duluth, Minnesota. It feels a bit uncomfortable calling her shapely, considering she is likely someone’s great great great grandmother. Hopefully, her descendants will accept the Cabinet Card Gallery’s apologies in advance if they should happen to visit this site. The subject is posed behind a short wall and her hat is placed upon the wall. The young woman is named Mary Bramer. Her identity is found written on the reverse of the card. The photographed woman is possibly the Mary Bramer, who was born 11/2/1872 in Minnesota and died 12/7/1959 in Lake County, Minnesota.
