Foto Friday - Cabinet Card Young Woman

 I decided to start posting some of the photos I've purchased at thrift stores, yard sales and antique stores.  Some will be enhanced due to the condition, as today's cabinet card is.  I just loved her dress and hair.  Below is original scan.  No names or dates, however there are many ways to help you date your photograph and these can be easily found online.  Cabinet cards were in America 1866-1900. I'm going to guess having researched cabinet cards for many years it could be about early 1870's due to the simplicity and color of the card (it is whiter than it looks here) and the fact there is no photographer's name on the mount.
