A lovely young woman

This lovely young woman is one of the unidentified cabinet cards from the C. Murray Album.  She may be a cousin, friend, relation of the Streeter family, it’s just impossible to tell now. The photographer, D. B. Chase, was well established in Colorado, and many of his photographs of the region are in a special collection at the New Mexico State University Library. He was one of several photographers who documented the American Southwest in the late 19th century. He was active between 1873-1897, but we can safely date this photo to the 1890s based on the clothing the young lady is wearing. D. B. Chase passed away in 1897.
