Cool services provided

This cabinet card in my collection appears to be from the 1880’s.  I really like the buttons up both sides of the bodice.  Nice touch.

SAM_2512After a quick Google search, I can say that this photographer was at that address in the early 1880’s.

I like the extra services this guy does.  The instant photograph for children.  I’ve seen enough blurry photographs of children who were not able to hold still for the old slow exposure photograph that was in use at the time.  The fire-proof vault is a nice touch.  I wonder how common that was?



The best is the option to enlarge to life-size.  Probably just a face…not the whole body.  Wouldn’t that be awesome…to have a full body portrait!  Imagine the top photograph in life-size!  Love it!
