PRETTY BRIDE IN HERKIMER, NEW YORK

This cabinet card features a beautiful young woman posing for what is probably her wedding portrait. She is wearing a stunning white lace trimmed dress and is holding a white ostrich feather in her gloved hands. Note her big puff sleeves. This image was produced by the Willey & Griswold studio  in Herkimer, New York. The studio was located on the “Democrat Block”. This is certainly an unusual name for a street. The area doesn’t sound like a particularly heterogeneous neighborhood. My hypothesis is that the street was named after a local newspaper, The Herkimer County Democrat which was published between 1856 and 1861. The newspaper company was likely located on the block, and as a major landmark, the street was named after it. This cabinet card portrait is in very good condition (see scans).

  1. The dress is lovely, and I can just imagine the sound it made when she walked.
