Photo Number 1732

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

Cabinet Card lady and a weird chair Brainerd Antiques

A lady in a dress with a bustle and a pleated hem. It is kinda weird that she is leaning on that chair that is covered with a drape.

Sather was the photographer in Minneapolis, Minn    There are several Sathers. This one is Theodore A. Sather’s photo he was in Minneapolis from 1887 to 1889.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. That is odd. Perhaps the chair was a bit tatty?

    1. Nice to see my pal Pete up there in the banner! And one leg Jack too!

  2. I noticed that right away, too. Actually, out of the corner of my eye at first glance, it gave the illusion of a hoop skirt.
    Who knows what the photographer was thinking...
