First Communion Portrait - Cabinet Card of Teenage Boy with Stereo Viewer and Cards

This is a cabinet card by Jalass Photo Studio of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A young man, wearing his best suit with white flowers on this lapel, holds a book with a cross on the cover. His hair shows signs of rather heavy handed retouching. I also think this would be a good candidate for a naive background group if one is founded.

 

A table beside him holds a Holmes stereo view and a bowl full of stereo cards. Unfortunately the image of the card in the view is not sharp enough to identify. I am posting a detail of the book and stereo viewer.
