Almost Wordless Wednesday: Cabinet Card of a Young Woman

Posted by Jim Sanders on Wednesday, 11 September, 2013

Can you help identify this woman? I have a few questions about the photo.

  • What is the approximate date the photo was taken?
  • What is the approximate age of the woman in the photo?
  • What is the photographers name? I can easily read Oscar. Is the last name Dummar?
  • It looks like a real formal photograph. What might have been the occasion for the photo?

If you have any thoughts about this photo, I would love to hear from you.
