WOMAN MAKES FASHION STATEMENT IN NORTH LA CROSSE, WISCONSIN

la crosse

A woman with pursed lips and piercing eyes poses for her portrait at the C. Spettel studio in North La Crosse, Wisconsin. Spettel was located at 720 Rose Street in North La Crosse. Consultation is needed from the cabinet card gallery research department (comprised of informed and expert visitors to the site). Is the subject wearing a scarf wrapped around the top of her dress or is the alleged scarf actually part of her dress? I have not seen many cabinet cards featuring woman wearing similar attire. Research reveals that Clement Spettel (1864-?) learned the business of photography at a young age and started his own business in North La Crosse in 1886. He was soon joined by his brother A. F. Spetel (1866-?). They were in business together from 1887 through 1906.
