Mrs. Margaret Kushmore, Nurse, Philadelphia, Pa.

Mrs. Margaret Kushmore, Nurse, Philadelphia, Pa.
"Mrs. Margaret Kushmore, nurse, No. 319 Richmond Street."

An unusual Victorian-era business card. Calling cards that listed just a name were the norm for women and men in the late nineteenth century, but it's not as common to find a business card from that period that advertises a woman's name, occupation, and address in this manner. It's likely that this is the same Margaret Kushmore (1828-1909) who is buried in the East Cedar Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which is located about six miles from the 319 Richmond Street address that she used on her card.
