Eaton Lothrop Collection
cards with images of photographers are rare and with women photographers, exceptionally
so. I have yet to find an affordable cabinet
card of a woman photographer for my own collection. Cabinet cards by
women photographers, however, are fairly common.
only cabinet card with a camera in my own collection is this one of children,
a common theme on postcards but rare on cabinet cards.|
F. R. Lavender of Ravenna, Michigan, the photographer of this scene, appears to have set it up outdoors. Two of the girls are wearing identical striped (possibly Kodak Girl??) dresses.
