Photo Number 1009

This is a Cabinet Card from Craig’s Collection.
Walter Bower Cab Card Craig Dakota Territory
C.O. Nye was the photographer from Aberdeen D.T. (Dakota Territory) So this Cabinet Card can be dated  before South Dakota became a State on November 02, 1889.

Note that the location is a Parlor Car.  A parlor car would have tables and chairs and possibly even a viewing platform off the back of the car.
