JOSIAH BENNETT: STATE SENATOR FROM MASSACHUSETTS

by bmarshphd

josiah bennet_0001

This cabinet card features a portrait of Massachusetts Senator Josiah Bennett. His mustache is very notable and earns him a spot in the cabinet card gallery category "Mustaches (Only the Best)". Be sure to check out the collection of extraordinary mustaches. This portrait was taken in 1885 by the Bushby & Macurdy studio located on Washington Street in Boston. Asa Bushby was born in South Danvers, Massachusetts in 1834. He was a self taught portrait painter and after returning from the Civil War, he became a photographer. He opened a studio in Peabody, and then moved to Lynn, and later to Boston, Massachusetts. At some point in his career, he partnered with George W. Macurdy. He is listed in the 1889 Boston business directory.  At the end of the 1880's he moved to Tacoma, Washington and died there in 1897. Civil war buffs may be interested to know that Asa Bushby served in the 1st Regiment Massachusetts Heavy Artillery (company D). He entered, and later left the regiment as a private.  Josiah Bennett served as a state senator. He was served on a committee that addressed state prison issues. Hopefully, further research will yield more information about Mr. Bennett.

DOUBLE WEDDING IN WENONA, ILLINOIS

by bmarshphd

DOUBLEWEDDING_0007

This cabinet card appears to be a portrait of two wedding couples who participated in a double wedding. Of course it is also possible that just one of these couples are a bride and groom and the other are part of the wedding party.  All four subjects are adorned with flowers for the special occasion. The men have terrific mustaches. The photographer of this image is James Parrett whose studio was located in Wenona, Illinois. Parrett was born in Magnolia, Illinois in 1857. He came to Wenona with his parents in 1867. He learned photography in 1884 at a studio in Streator, Illinois. He opened a studio in Wenona in 1884. A year later he married Miss May Stoner of Wenona. While working as a photographer, Parrett was also a member of the school board for several years and served at least one term as an alderman. The Bulletin of Photography (1912) announced that Parrott had sold his studio to Clarence Jones.

LOVELY LADY AND A TRAIN WRECK IN ASHTABULA, OHIO

by bmarshphd

lovelyladThis cabinet card features a portrait of a very lovely lady posing in the studio of  Blakeslee & Moore in Ashtabula, Ohio.  The town of Ashtabula was the site of a major train wreck in 1876 and one of the firemen who responded to the resulting blaze was Frederick W. Blakeslee. Besides being a firefighter, he was also a photographer and he used his camera to record the aftermath of the disaster. The image he made has become legendary in the history of disasters and the history of Ashtabula. He sold thousands of prints of the scene. Fred W. Blakeslee  was in business in Ashtabula from 1870 to 1897. Blakeslee was born in Ohio in 1843. He was a lifelong resident of Ashtabula. At the end of the civil war he opened a photography studio in the town. Beginning the 1870's he was joined by Frank C Moore (1851-1907). For a time, they operated a branch in Geneva, Ohio. Moore began his photography career as an apprentice in Ashtabula and then ran his own studio in Lima, Ohio between 1870 and 1875. Moore's partnership with Blakeslee ended in 1894. Blakeslee's son Frederick K Blakeslee (1880-?) also became a photographer in Ashtabula. The story of the "Ashtabula Train Disaster" is immensely tragic. The accident is thought to have been caused mainly by the collapse of a bridge owned by the Lake Shore and Michigan Railroad. The bridge was a joint creation by Charles Collins (engineer) and Amasa Stone (architect and designer). On a winter night in 1876, a train carrying 159 passengers and crew crossed over the bridge and when the first engine just passed the far side of the bridge, the bridge began to collapse and the rest of the train fell into the ravine. Ninety-two people were killed in the accident and most died from fires that were started from the train car's oil lamps and stoves. The passengers were trapped in the burning crushed cars. The accident happened after a heavy snow storm and the rescuers were ill prepared and not equipped to help the poor victims of the train wreck. Charles Collins testified about the bridge design to an investigative jury and after finishing his tearful testimony, went home and shot himself in the head. Amasa Stone was held partially responsible for the accident, but he refused to accept blame. He theorized that the train jumped its tracks and destroyed the bridge. However, it is probable that he suffered severely from the incident, and about seven years later, he shot himself in the heart.
