These two cabinet cards have some things in common. Each photograph features an attractive woman with bottle curls. In addition, each image was photographed by George Daniels Morse, whose studio was located in San Francisco, California. Note that these photographs were taken at different times; which is evident by the fact that the two portraits list the studio location at different addresses.
