Photo Number 715

Another Cabinet Card from Solway Minnesota.

Nebraska lady sitting down Cabinet Card Solway

This young gals dress has a series of trims down the front, wide ribbons and many pleats.  She also has a large brooch of some sort. Her sleeves seem lifeless and sad.  I wonder if the papers she is holding or the papers on the stand have an real significance?

Pont Soderberg was the photographer in Sutton Nebraska.  I know he was there for sure in 1894 from a list of business's in Sutton .. he  might have been there from 1890 to 1905.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. That is a pretty dress - the little table next to her - not so much!

    Such a shame there is not ID on the photo - she was *somebody*!!

  2. I think this combines the bodice styles of the 1880s but the sleeve and skirt styles of the 1890s. I also wonder about the papers.

  3. That was some difficult dress to make with all the pleats and to launder, I would think. I'm wondering about her hiar. It sure is pulled tight onto her head. That would give me a headache for sure.
