This scalloped cabinet card features a slim figured teenage girl. She is wearing a necklace and earrings. The reverse of the photograph has a stamp which identifies the photographer as Thomas Ryerse and lists his address as 31 Emslie Street in Buffalo, New York. He is listed in the 1893 Buffalo directory as a photographer at the Emslie address. To view other photographs by Ryerse, click on the category “Photographer: Ryerse”.
This young woman is wearing a necklace with a charm portrait of another young woman. The necklace and charm appear to have been added after the photograph was taken. The photographer is Ryerse of Buffalo, New York. In my opinion, the photographer earns high marks for creativity but poor marks for artistry.
