Group of 10 Pretty Philly Girls Cabinet Card Photo

The poses in some 19th century studio portraits fascinate me. I really like this group shot where the photographer must have had a set of rules as to how to position multiple heads. As I count it: "5 of you girls look to the right, you 2 look at the birdy on the left and you other 3 tilt your heads forlornly."

Circa 1880's cabinet card photo of ten pretty girls. Photographer is Gilbert & Bacon out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
