Victorian teen Mc Bracken of Waterloo, Wisconsin
Close-up of cabinet card portrait. Private Collection.
Photogenic teen Mc Bracken with the dark eyes is wearing a mix of patterns with a moon tie stack to bring it all together over the overlapping collar. I give this card a broad window from the 1880s to early 1900s.
The card’s also a rarer shade of pink with dark pink lettering on the front. The back is plain except for the sitter’s written last name.
