PORTRAIT OF A PRETTY AND FASHIONABLE YOUNG WOMAN IN LEWISTON, MAINE

The woman in this vintage photograph is both beautiful and well dressed. She exhibits an engaging smile as she poses for her portrait at the studio of H. Larocque in Lewiston, Maine. She is wearing a high collared dress and holding flowers in her lap. She is likely wearing a corset judging by her tiny waist. The photographer of this image is Henri Larocque (1859-1922). He was born in Quebec and died in Lewiston. He was married to Mary Hinse Larocque (1867-1956).Henri is listed in city directories as a photographer at least as early as 1887. The 1920 US census also lists him as a photographer along with his son George (age 33) and daughter Emmilene (age 31). Henri and his wife are buried in St. Peter's Cemetery in Lewiston.
