    "Soiled Dove" Cabinet Card Mounted cabinet card of a young prostitute circa 1880s. The young woman is posed with her face gently resting on her hands. She is dressed in a strapless bustier, with exposed cleavage. Her hair is loose, and she wears an assortment of rings and a thick bracelet. Not a great beauty, the photographer has managed to capture deep pathos; her expression is one of wonderment, hope, and sadness. It is likely this will be a great highlight in her hard and trying life. With heavy dampstaining that has caused damage primarily to the mount, causing it to separate, the surface also has scuffing. In just fair condition, but nevertheless a great image.
