Cabinet Cards 1870 - 1900

Points to watch:

Thicker Card, with Rounded Corners from about 1874, Ornate Backs
Rounded corners as photograph albums became fashionable and the corners would not tear the albums.
Men wearing bow ties, frock coats
Women's dresses slimmer outline and bustles coming in. 1870s dresses look a lot like furnishings

I haven't been able to identify the top two photographs, but the second is more recent than the first (The photographer has now expanded into the USA) even though she seems from another age. I decided that this was likely a copy inserted into a new card for the purposes of her funeral, it even says copy in the center.
The third photograph will be from the 1870s and the last is likely a little boy, side parting in his hair.
