SALVATION ARMY SISTERS IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

This photograph, by Dillon, features two young woman in their Salvation Army uniforms. Dillon’s studio was located in Chicago, Illinois. The woman’s Salvation Army brooches are worn at their collar. Note that one of the woman is wearing spectacles. The name “Walker” is written twice on the back of the photograph. The names appear directly above and below each other which likely indicates that each woman is named Walker, and that they are sisters.

Dillon, who was the Vice President of the Chicago Photographers Club, according to an article in The Photo Beacon (1897).
