This cabinet card portrait features an attractive stylish woman wearing unusual but attire. Her ensemble looks like she is wearing wire mesh under her jacket but it most likely just the design of her blouse or jewelry. It would be terrific if some of the cabinet card gallery’s visitors from the fashion contingent would comment on this woman’s clothing choice. The photograph was produced by the Cudding studio in Friendship, and Bolivar, New York. The town of Cudding was settled in 1806. It is located in Allegany County. The original name of the town was “Bloody Corners” due to the amount of conflict in the area. Fortunately, peace must have come to the area and in 1815, the town was renamed Friendship.
