OUT OF THE DARKNESS: A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN IN BINGHAMTON, NEW YORK

by bmarshphd

BINGHAMTON GIRL_0003A 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.

STAGE ACTOR: JOHN HARE LACKS "THE LEADING MAN LOOK" IN A PORTRAIT BY THE PACH BROTHERS

by bmarshphd

JOHN HARE_0007

This unusual looking gentleman is an English actor and theatre manager named John Hare. John Hare (1844-1921) was born in a town called "Giggleswick". This is an appropriate name for the birthplace for a man who began his acting career in comic roles. Giggleswick was located in Yorkshire, England. Hare began his acting career in Liverpool in 1864. He is often associated with the plays of T. W. Robertson. Hare managed the Court Theatre (1875-1879), the St. James Theatre (1879-1888), and the Garrick Theatre (1889-1895). His greatest success as an actor was in the play A Pair of Spectacles (1890). This portrait of John Hare likely captures the actor in wardrobe and makeup for one of his productions. However, it is possible that he aged poorly which can be hypothesized because photographs taken of the actor in earlier years show a man with a significantly more pleasing appearance.

A RELIGIOUS MAN ASKS "DOST THOU BELIEVE IN THE SON OF GOD?"

by bmarshphd

RELIGIOUS MAN_0008This cabinet card portrait features a religious man and a poster board with a religious message.  By all appearances, it seems that he is fervent preacher of his religious beliefs. He was photographed by the Cooper & Sanders studio in London, Ontario, Canada. The gentleman has a bushy beard. On the reverse of this image is a note that indicate the photograph was taken in 1905. In addition, the name "Bertha" or possibly "Butha" is written on the back of the cabinet card. Cooper & Sanders were in business in London, Ontario between 1896 and 1909.
