Photos by Women
The print on the bottom of the cabinet card on the right gives more than the usual information about the photographer: "Mrs. E. A. Lockwood, 1884, Ripon, Wisconsin, Ground Floor Gallery" but none about the sitter who is wearing glasses and an interesting outfit.
The vast majority of cabinet cards show photos taken in a studio. The one on the left, photographed by Mary A. Clegg, seems to have been taken outside after some kind of special event as all three women are wearing corsages. The middle woman appears frail and ill.
Emily Stokes' studio was located on fashionable Boylston Street in downtown Boston. Her subject, like the woman at the top of the page, is wearing an unusual outfit.

The back of the cabinet card is printed in gold with a handwritten date, March 1893.
