Photographer Rud Bachmann of New York City produced this portrait of a lovely and fashionable young couple. The woman in this image looks particularly young. She is wearing a dark dress with poofysleeves and a collar pin. The gentleman is wearing a dark suit and his watch chain is visible on his vest. The photographer’s full name is Rudolph Bachmann. He was born in 1850 in Switzerland. He came to the United States in about 1880 and by 1884 was operating a photography business at 1437 Broadway in New York City. The gallery was later relocated to 6 East 14th Street. Images published after 1914 indicate that he was joined in business by his son.
