A young girl, with a look of confidence, poses for her portrait at the Hall & Co. studio in Buffalo, New York. The studio was located at 306 Main Street in Buffalo. The front and back of the card mentions the name “Powelson” which appears to be the name of the building that the studio was located in. Benjamin F. Powelson was a pioneer photographer in Buffalo beginning in the 1840’s. E. F. Hall took this photograph between 1889 and 1895. The reverse of this card indicates that Hall won an award in 1889 and research reveals that he opened a new studio in 1895, in another location in Buffalo. Hall was elected an officer in the Buffalo camera club in 1889.
