School Photo

Cabinet Print

Around 1900

Above is a school photograph in the form of a cabinet print, probably from around 1900.

Cabinet print photographs are about 5.5 ins x 4 ins.  They are mounted on trade cards 6.5 ins x 4.5 ins But, despite this relatively small size, the quality of Prophet's photos was good, as can be seen by zooming in to the example below.


This photograph was provided by David Lines who believes that it may include his grandfather. 

Do you recognise the class or the teacher?  If so, please email me.   

Thank you.    - Peter Stubbs
