Sweet, Orr & Co. Factory Workers Cabinet Photo

The other day my friend at work came in and said he had something I should post on the blog. He then proceeded to hand me this incredible cabinet photo showing women at their sewing stations inside the Sweet, Orr & Co. factory. There's no date on the piece, but it's easily from the late 1890s or early 1900s. The name Clara Hanlin is written on the front of the piece. A quick search online produced no results to help me identify this woman. There's writing on the back, but it's pretty difficult to make out what it says. Check out the Stifel Indigo Cloth in the bottom right-hand corner.
