This lovely cabinet card from the Red Velvet Album features a very cute baby in a dress trimmed with gorgeous lace. The baby is a blondie, and I think might have been a boy by the side part that is sort of there. However, being such a undefined part, it could just be the way the baby’s hair fell and this is a girl. It is unidentified, so we will never know.
The photographer was J. E. Hall in Meadville, PA. The cabinet card itself is interesting with the way the edges are beveled. I have seen deckled edges but not this style. Since deckled edges were popular in the 1890s I’ll date this in the same decade.
