LITTLE GIRL AND A WALL IN PHILADELPHIA

A young girl poses for this cabinet card photographed by George Rau of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She appears to be unenthusiastic about posing for this photograph. Note the sculpted lion head on the wall. The photographer, George Rau,  was part of a well known family involved in early photography. Members of his family were active in the areas of lantern slides and stereographs. Research found much written about these family members but little about underachieving George. However, he was a contributor to a book called Photographic Mosaic (1884) in which he wrote a section on “Gelatine Emulsion Plates”.
