A young woman poses for her portrait at the Cobb studio in Binghamton, New York. The photographer uses the familiar (seen elsewhere in the Cabinet Card Gallery) technique of capturing the subject in a focused light surrounded by darkness. The pretty young woman is wearing a collar pin and a hair accessory. George N. Cobb was in 1847 in upstate New York. In 1850 he moved with his family to New Milford, Pennsylvania. At age nineteen he took over a photographic gallery owned by J. B. Hazleton in Montrose, Pennsylvania. It is likely that he was trained by Hazleton before he bought him out of the business. Cobb moved to Binghamton in 1870 and bought the gallery belonging to Ambrose Hickcox. He operated the studio until 1903. To view other photographs by Cobb, click on the category “Photographer: Cobb”.
