“Be Good and You Will Be Lonesome”: Lovely Woman in London

kirkpatrick_0002

This Cabinet card presents a bit of a mystery.  This lovely woman is posing at a studio in London. The name of the studio is difficult to make out but it appears to be Huggins Sisters.  The reverse of the card offers further intrigue. Written in pen on the back of the card is the following, “Be good and you will be lonesome”. The quote is signed “Glennie Kirkpatrick” but since her first name is written somewhat illegibly, I am not certain about my accuracy of “Glennie”.  Interestingly, the quote originally is attributable to American writer, Mark Twain. If anyone has information that can help shed some more light about the story of this Cabinet card, please leave a comment.
