I want to share a cabinet card with you. It isn’t mine. My pal, Shirley, carries this one around as a prop when in costume. You all know it is the props and accessories that make a dress look like an outfit. Part of Shirley’s “story” is that this is a “dearly departed”.I found a reference for Bigelow in Dowagiac that says his full name was Bigelow, Hervey S. and he worked in that town from 1883-1902. Since the card has scalloped edges, it would be from the 1890’s to 1902 (when he stopped working in that town).
There is some writing on the back.
I think the name is Mrs. J. E. De Grow. The rest could be an address? Directions?
