Cabinet card featuring two girls who are vaguely related to me

On the heels of Saturday's family cabinet card, here's another one from a studio in Wilmington, Delaware, presumably from the late 19th century.

The only writing on the back of the card, which came decades after its creation, state:

Edith - Marjorie [?] Simmons
Greta's 1st Cousins

Greta, if this is your first time here, is my great-grandmother. I mentioned her, too, on Saturday.

These two young girls, almost certainly sisters, were all set to go do some hoop rolling after having their portrait taken, though they might have had to change out of their nice white dresses first.

  1. The little boys look like they're have much more fun than the girls in white dresses...!
