Van Sickle, West

Today’s photograph is identified as Van Sickle, West. I assume that means that the first name was lost to the ages. This lady kind of looks like the mother in yesterday’s photograph. What do you think? She is wearing pince nez spectacles that have a little chain that wraps probably around her ear, which was a known method to keep track of one’s glasses.

On the back corner of this cabinet card was written:

Taken Dec 24, 1889. Do you think this is the same woman or not?

This photo was made by Stewart & Yoost at 56 Main Street, Oneida, NY.
