There is some faded writing on the back of this cabinet card, but there were only two words I could reliably translate. "Armi," obviously army and "uniforma," uniform. It's when I got out the magnifying glass and strained to read the print on the lady's sashes that I was able to infer some answers. "For Synders Frelse" fed into the Google translator, Danish came up as the language and the actual translation, "For sinners salvation." The best explanation is that these three ladies are members of The Salvation Army and that, if I could read what's actually written on the back, it would come up as either "3 Salvation Army members in uniform or "3 Salvation Army women in uniform." And the photographers name, "F. Lind Kabelvaag."
