Alice and Emma from Clinton, Missouri

What it is:

Photo (approx. 2.75 x 2.75 inches) mounted on a cardboard frame/backing (approx. 3.75 x 3.75 inches).

What I know about it:

Photographer is W. P. Hubbell of Clinton, MO.  Alice + Emma is written on the back in pen.


The photo itself is fairly average, but what I find so unusual is the mounting, the way it is positioned to be viewed like a diamond, rather than a flat square.  Also interesting is the fact that this is one of two identical copies in my collection, same photo, same mounting, same handwritten identification on the back, etc.  While I purchased them from the same source, I wonder if they have always been together, or if they went on separate journeys that nevertheless ended up at the same place.
