This is a group of five cabinet cards from about the 1890s. They all offer an impressive look at life over a century ago. Names of the people are unfortunately long gone. Here are the cards in order of viewing:
1. Looks like a school photo. Sepia tone with some fading and some white spots. Plain unmarked cardboard backing (blank on the back, therefore no photo taken). Two rounded corners on the card. Card is 6.1x4.3 inches. Overall good condition.
2. Woman holding small child, might be a Christening photo. By Does & Sohne (Germany). This is the only small card in the group. Card measures 4x2.5 inches. There is some rubbing over to one side, but overall the photo is very clear. Two photos of this item, one of the front and one showing the back side.
3. Two young girls. Border and back indicate photo by Stern Jorsef. This one is dated September 1887. Some minor staining/spots on the photo. Photos show both sides of the card. Card is 6.5x4.2 inches.
