PORTRAIT OF A COUPLE IN COLDWATER (BETTER THAN HOTWATER), MICHIGAN

coldwater

A well dressed couple pose for their portrait at the Osborn studio in Coldwater, Michigan. Interestingly, this is the second cabinet card gallery photograph to originate from a Coldwater photographer’s studio. This lovely couple assumes the popular at the time pose of the man sitting and woman standing. The subjects also assume the standard “no smile” expression. Note the woman’s large bow and corset assisted figure. Also worth noting is the man’s mustache, pocket watch chain and bow tie. He is also wearing a pin on his vest. Clarence R. Osborn (1865-1950) was a photographer in Coldwater from 1890 through 1935. He was born in Steuben County, Indiana and died in Branch County, Michigan. He is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery in Coldwater.
