This cabinet card portrait features a pretty woman named Lizzie Smitz. She is identified on the reverse of the image. She is wearing earrings and what appears to be a beaded dress. Ms Smitz has great eyes. The photographer is Abbott, whose studio was located in Henry, Illinois. No biographical information about Lizzie Smitz could be found. The photographer, Charles Abbott is listed in the 1880 US census as an artist. He was 35 years old and lived with his wife, Louisa Abbott (age 32), and their son Harry (age 12). The family lived in a boarding house. The couple had married in 1867. Louisa Abbott was also listed in the census as an artist.
