The smile says it all in this 1890s cabinet card: a woman proud of her accomplishments.
On the stand sits a large framed certification: "Certificate of Membership, Photographer". Above the wording is a studio camera of the era inside a photographer's studio.
I am not sure if the certificate is for an amateur photographers organization or membership in a professional photographers organization.
Maybe someone on here is familiar with or has seen one of these certificates before?
Any and all help is appreciated.
