This cabinet card serves as a period fashion photograph. The unidentified woman in this image is wearing a button down dress and a large hat. The photographer is J. G, Hill of Monroe, Michigan. According to the 1880 US census,the thirty year-old Hill (1850-?) was born in Canada and lived in Monroe with his wife Katie Hill (age 24) and their children, Willie (age 2) and Charles (age 10 months). Katie’s 16 year-old brother also lived with the J. G. Hill family. The 1890 Detroit business directory lists Hill and his photography studio, but from that point of time until 1897, Hill clearly relocated, and his studio can be found in the Toledo, Ohio business directory.
