Maude Miller continued to operate Miller’s Studio for some years after the death of her father, but the popularity of the Cabinet Card had all but died.

Of the two cabinet cards here, only one shows a studio location. It can be dated to sometime around 1897 when Miller was living in Henrietta, TX.
