Every Friday The Psychogenealogist shares a "Pic of the Week." The intent is to encourage thought and imagination about the spaces where psychology, genealogy, and history converge.
Here is a lovely cabinet card photograph of a bespectacled middle aged woman with a confident stare. My guess is that it is early 1900s. I love the clarity of this particular print.
I haven't a clue about who this woman is other than the photograph was taken by a photographer named "Kuebler" at 1210 Chestnut St. in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Here is an advertisement for this photographer in the The Times (Philadelphia, PA) on November 28, 1897. There were several others like it during this time period.
Here is some more information I was able to find out about the photographer.
Here is the earlier article referenced in the above clipping about Miss Eleanore Mayo, "The Youthful Princess Bonnie". You can find the entire article here in The Times on April 15, 1894.
When I sat down to write this post I had no notion that the focus would shift to the photographer. But, here we are!
The study of genealogy and history is full of rabbit holes. We take the clues where they lead us. We find the stories that want to be found.
In the infinitesimally small chance you recognize the woman that prompted this post please let me know. I would love to hear from you!
