Rare mid-1890s cabinet card showing a dentist with his patient. There are all sorts of dental tools and equipment on the table, as well as a newspaper titled "Dentistry". The dentist is holding pliers with a human tooth in it! The original ink writing on the photo clearly makes it an advertising image for "Happy Hour Dental, Co.". There is no location or photographer (the back is blank, as produced), but searching my genealogy sites I found a Happy Hour Dental operating in Salt Lake City, Utah Territory, from 1890 (or earlier) until at least 1903. Around the time this photo was taken, the office employed two lady dentists, Kate Buck and Nettie Weaverling (that's very possibly one of them in the chair); the male dentist was most likely Dr. William H. Hopkins. 6.5" x 4.25" with blank back. Very good antique condition, with some light spots and surface wear. Boxed Priority Mail.
