Since the Easter season is here, I thought I’d show you some antique photos from my collection that feature children and religion (I think.) All three of these are cabinet cards, which were very popular from about 1870 to 1905. A cabinet card is a photographic print measuring 4 inches by 5 ½ inches attached to a cardboard mount. Often the photographer’s name and address are printed on the front or back.
This photograph of a girl celebrating her first communion was found in Mexico and was taken by Estudio Ponce de Leon, address: Jesus Maria 22. It’s slightly smaller than the other two cabinet cards.
