The Dubuque, IA, city directory made a habit of not listing a business for single females apparently. The available documents make it only marginally clear that Mary Weigel was a photographer from 1880 to about 1920. This cabinet card was probably finished around 1902 when she purchased the Freyman Gallery. It also might have been made in that period from 1920 to 1929 when she was NOT in Dubuque.

Not the one you were looking for?
Here's the photographer's INDEX by name. Listed here are all the Cabinet Card photographers of the 19th century found in LOST GALLERY. This is a work in progress. For a look at the original postings go to LOST GALLERY.
