Woman from Chicago in a striped dress

What it is:

Cabinet card measuring 4.25 x 6.5 inches.

What I know about it:

Photographer is Hirsch of Chicago.  Photographer’s imprint on the back dates it to 1889 (assuming he wasn’t using up old stock).  Unidentified.


Many photos are perfectly beautiful in black-and-white, but the flowers and the dress make me wish I could see this one in color.
