Photographer James Alba Bostwick of New York City photographed this cabinet card portrait of a well dressed couple. The gentleman looks quite austere in his long coat and derby hat. The young woman has a very engaging expression. She is wearing an interesting hat, fur trimmed collar and sleeve cuffs, as well as gloves. Note the ruffle bottom of her skirt. She definitely has earned the title of “fashionista”. To view other photographs by this photographer and to learn more about him, click on the category “Photographer: Bostwick”.

YOUNG WOMAN WITH SMILING EYES IN NEW YORK CITY

BOSTWICK_0001

A pretty young lady poses for her portrait at New York City’s Bostwick studio. The woman has a wonderful smile accompanied by “smiling eyes”. It appears that this cabinet card once resided in an oval frame judging by the oval indentation on the image. Advertising on the reverse of this cabinet card reveals that Bostwick’s studio was located between 8th and 9th Streets in New York City. The ad also notes that the studio was established in 1867. James Alba Bostwick was born in 1846 or 1848 in Livonia, New York. At one point in his photography career he was a partner in a firm named Bostwick and Bancker. A collection of Bostwick’s work is owned by the University of New Hampshire’s library. In 1927 Bostwick died in Brooklyn, New York.  He was 79 years of age at the time of his death.
