MAN AND TWO WOMEN POSE ON BOARD SHIP IN BLACKPOOL, GREAT BRITAIN

This cabinet card of a man and two women posing aboard a ship, was photographed by D. Mitchell of Blackpool, Great Britain. The photographer, whose studio was located near a pier in the seaside city of Blackpool, utilized a relevant nautical theme. The backdrop is fantastic and the hanging rope held by the gentleman, and the ropes in front of the ladies, are a “great touch”. This is one of the finest uses of background scenery and props that can be found in the entire cabinet card gallery. The South Pier was originally named the Victoria Pier. The pier opened in 1893 and served  vacation travelers to Blackpool. The subjects of this cabinet card image are likely tourists on holiday.
