Could these be three, four or five generations of one family? The woman and girl resemble each other and could be mother and daughter. In the second photograph the man in the back looks much older than the man and woman in front of him. Are they a couple, brother and sister, or mother and son?
There is no identification on either of these photographs. The cardboard is the same and the backs are identical in color which tells me they may have been made at the same time. Or could these cabinet cards have been reprinted and mounted at the same time? Are the clothes seen in both photos from the same time period? Could this be 1870s or 1880s?
