A batswoman in a uniform, clearly inspired by that of a cricketer, from the Ellsworth Base Ball Club of Athol, Massachusetts stares forth on this cabinet photo from Harlow Studios. Some damage can be seen at the top in two or three spots, and the corners have all taken a hit.  The image is a little faded but still charming. The mount's reverse is fairly clean, with some light foxing.  A stunning early image of a female ballplayer, in full uniform.
