I admit right off that I am recycling this photo. I previously posted this cabinet card back in 2010 as part of the exploration of the Streeter Family Album, aka the C. Murray Album. The subject is Kate Parish Streeter, wife of Arthur G. Streeter. The couple was married in Junction City, Kansas on May 1, 1889. Click here to see their wedding photo. In March 1891, a little daughter arrived, and she was photographed with her mother in 1892.
A site visitor commented on my photo of Arthur Streeter as a photographer that Kate’s sister Effie had married Dr. James Thayer and they relocated to Gilroy, CA. She suggested that Kate and Arthur joined the Thayers in Gilroy. Kate Streeter passed away in 1896 and was buried in Kansas. I encourage you to click the various links as they help to shape the story of Kate and Arthur Streeter. This dress is a particularly lovely example of Victorian dress circa the early 1890s.
