Description: The Sutherland Sisters and their long tresses. Two cabinet cards. One shows them with their manager. It is an interesting group portrait in an elaborate arrangement that makes an interesting comparison with studio group portraits from the daguerreian era. Their names are printed verso, with the length of each sister’s hair, but no photographer is indicated [4-] The second is a less well arranged group, by Morris, Pittsburgh. The verso is an advertisement for their hair care products. Hair has always been a concern of humankind. In this period photography was enlisted in the service of making it commercially profitable.
