WOMAN WITH A BROOCH IN KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN (1891)

A young woman poses for this cabinet card photograph at the Wood photographic studio in Kalamazoo, Michigan. She is wearing a brooch which may  hold a photograph of her daughter, or perhaps, a photo of herself at a younger age. This attractive young woman has curly hair and wonderful eyes. The photographer of this photograph is likely T. E. Wood who is mentioned in photography journals published in 1893 and 1895. This cabinet card has the year 1891 printed on the bottom of the card which is likely the year that this photograph was taken.

YOUNG GIRL WEARING TIC TAC TOE DRESS IN KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN (1890)

tictactoeThis little girl is posing for the photographer in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The photographer is Wood and the date on the front of the card indicates that the photograph was taken in 1890. This cute but serious little girl is wearing a dress with a tic tac toe design pattern. I think tic tacky toe is a better description but I do wonder if in the 1890’s someone besides this girl’s mother thought the dress was cute. Incidentally, the game of tic tac toe has been around for centuries. To view other photographs by Wood, click on the category “Photographer: Wood”.
