A young woman is featured in this cabinet card photograph by J. H. Benson, in Pontiac, Michigan. The photographer did an excellent job of utilizing light in this portrait of a well dressed and well coiffed woman. John H. Benson was a native New Yorker. Directories from 1863 and 1875 indicate he conducted business in Saginaw, Michigan. Perhaps he moved to Pontiac in the later years of his career. Benson died in 1901.
