This cabinet card features the Palace Bath House of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. A stamp in the lower left corner of the print reveals Miss Pennistone" as the photographer. Cabinet cards were developed shortly after 1866 in response to a new and greater demand for photographs. These cards were developed using the same wet-plate collodion process as carte-de-visites, but were made in a larger format. Cabinet cards, or cabinet photographs as they are some times referred to, were immensely popular into the early 1880s, and in Arkansas they maintained that popularity almost to the turn of the century.
