GLOVERSVILLE COUPLE_0001A nicely dressed young couple pose for their portrait at the Girard studio in Gloversville, New York. The gentleman is wearing striped pants and his pocket watch chain is visible under his jacket. The woman in the photograph is wearing a look of strength and confidence as she rests her hand on her husband’s shoulder.  Frederick Girard is the photographer of this cabinet card. An advertisement for his studio appears in the Daily Leader (1890), a Gloversville newspaper. Girard was born in Canada and appears in the 1880 US census as a photographer in Gloversville. He worked with a photographer named David Scidmore.
