This a Cabinet Card. The photographer was Meddaugh on Main Street in Lead, South Dakota. I got this photo in an Antique Shop in Perham, Minnesota. Meddaugh was in business from 1862 to 1926, under both the names Robert J or Isaac, it could have been a father and son, so it is difficult to date this photo..I liked the chair..its subtle paisley print and all those pom poms..but look at the rug, it needs to be straightened. The child, who might just be a boy is dressed beautifully in a gown made from his mothers petticoats! I will date this photo at 1890 to 1900.
