Today we feature an anonymous photograph on a cabinet card of a young girl, maybe aged 10-13. Note the incredibly lovely dead ivy adorning the stand. Nice. It’s rather surprising actually, because Hartley was a prolific photographer in the later 19th century. Edward F. Hartley (aka E. F. Hartley or E. Hartley) occupied 309 Madison, Chicago. He is known to have had an incredible output of CdVs and cabinet cards, you’d think he could afford a live plant. :-) An interesting note is that there is still a photographer using 309 Madison in Chicago, although Mr. Hartley has long since vacated.
