GRANDMOTHER WITH GRANDCHILD : WIRE RIMS : CHICAGO : GREAT BACKDROP : CABINET CARD

This cabinet card portrait features a lovely older woman and an adorable toddler. This photograph appears to capture a grandmother and her smiling grandchild. Grandma is wearing a collar pin and wire rimmed glasses. Dare I say, granny glasses. The photographer of this image may have been S. W. Dillon, who was the Vice President of the Chicago Photographers Club, according to an article in The Photo Beacon (1897). Mr. Dillon used a wonderful backstamp with a drawing showing the “elegantly appointed” interior of his photo studio. SOLD
