A young girl and her doll are the subjects of this cabinet card photograph. The doll is nearly as tall as the little girl. The studio that produced this image was Blaul & Baumgardner. Louis Blaul was a well known Philadelphia photographer who operated two studios in the city by 1890. Adolph J. Baumgardner was his business partner for a time in 1889. By 1890 Baumgardner was working with Louis H. Helbing at a studio on Lancaster Avenue in Philadelphia. Louis Blaul was succeeded by his son in the photography business. The son, Louis Adolph Blaul (1884-1954) was a law student at the University of Pennsylvania when his father died. He left his law studies to take over his fathers business.
