CALIFORNIA DREAMING AT THE TURN OF THE CENTURY (PRETTY WOMAN IN SANTA ANA)

An attractive and well dressed west coast woman poses for her cabinet card photograph at the studio of E. Bowman in Santa Ana, California. She is looking quite pensive as she sits for her photographic portrait. Note her lace collar and hair ornament. Little information can be found about the photographer except that a photography magazine from 1894 announced that Ed Bowman bought the photography studio of Harry Hamaker in Santa Ana.

CALIFORNIA COUPLE LOOKING NONE TOO PLEASED

A couple poses for a photograph at the studio of Hardesty & Armstrong in Santa Ana, California.  Both the man and woman in this cabinet card photograph look very unhappy. She looks particularly sour. The couple are nicely dressed; the woman is holding a fan and the man is holding a rolled piece of paper. Is he holding a wedding certificate for a wedding picture? Has he just graduated from a college? Is this a brother and sister? The answer is lost to history. Note the gentleman’s pocket watch.
