Boston Bloomers team photo on a late 19th Century Cabinet featuring the barnstorming nine wearing some very interesting headgear. The mount and photo are both damaged, with the latter having suffered several indignities. The mount's reverse has a penciled $6.50 showing.  This photograph is a familiar one; often used in articles and research pieces describing the Bloomer Girls teams, one of the earliest-known such images.
