PORTRAIT OF A BUCKEYE: CADDIE JOHNSON POSES IN CANTON, OHIO

This cabinet card portrait features Caddie Johnson in a very fine dress. She is posing for the photographer at the Buckeye Portrait & View Company  at No. 13 North Walnut Street in Canton, Ohio. No further information could be found about Ms. Johnson or the Buckeye Portrait and View Company. However, an explanation of the term “Buckeye” was excavated. The Buckeye is the state tree of Ohio.

  1. Yes, it’s also the state nickname. Ohio is “The Buckeye State”, like Pennsylvania is “The Keystone State”, California is “The Golden State”, etc.
