This is a Cabinet Card from Craig’s Collection.

Fanny Frances Sears Craigs Photos

McKecknie Oswald Leading Photographers in Toledo O.

This is Mrs. Fanny (Frances) Sears. The name is on the back and really hard to see, Craig attached a note with her name.  I think her gown looks like velvet and her hair is done up perfectly!

These dark Cabinet Cards were popular during 1877 to 1887 and the color was called Chocolate Brown.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.


  1. Frances Eveline Sears 1828 to 1900 Upper Sandusky Ohio is a possibility she would have been 49 in 1877 and 59 in 1887 The other Frances Sears and there are a few in Ohio are too old or too young.

  2. As you found out, there are a lot of them! No reason to think the one you found isn't her though!
