This cabinet card features a very pretty and very fashionable young woman. She is wearing a beautiful beaded dress and a couple of bracelets, earrings, necklace and ring. She certainly had fashion sense and wore clothing well. The photographer and the location of the studio are not indicated on the cabinet card. However, there is an inscription on the reverse of the image. The initials "GSR" and the name "Mary Wood" provide some clues to the identity of the woman. Also written on the reverse of the card is the year "1881" which is clearly the year that this photograph was taken.
