Photo Number 2687

This is a Cabinet Card from the antique shop in Fergus Falls Minnesota.

Lady in plaid dress FF ant

The photographer is Rice in New Hampton, Iowa

I purchased this cabinet card because the woman is wearing a plaid gown. You don’t see plaid very often, the fabric was expensive.

This type of cabinet card with the flowers and the banner are seen once in awhile.  I have always wondered if these were photos taken previously, the person died and then they had more photos made in this type of presentation to send to relatives who lived farther away..

The photo is not marked.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. That's a fany "framing" job! And yes, I wonder if she was dead (when the card was made up) --
