A MOTHER’S LOVE IN WILLIAMSPORT, PENNSYLVANIA

momandbaby_0009

A mother’s love is an invisible phenomenon. However, a mothers love is visible to a camera as the Dean studio of Williamsport, Pennsylvania demonstrates in this image. This portrait captures a loving mother holding her precious young child. The baby is wearing a long gown and the mother is wearing a ring and earrings. This mother’s commitment and affection toward her child radiates from this image. The baby’s expression seems to be one of displeasure at going through the ordeal of having his/her portrait taken. If Williamsport, Pennsylvania sounds like a familiar name to you, its likely because the town hosts the Little League World Series. The baseball tournament has been held there since 1947. William F. Dean was born in Canadaigua, New York in 1856.He and his family moved to Williamsport in 1867. He started his work life in his father’s mercantile business but in 1883 he and a partner opened a photography studio. The studio was called Dean & Cornwall and in 1887 Cornwall retired.. Dean’s photography business grew to the point that he had six assistants and a contract to be the exclusive photographer for 13 furniture factories. Dean died in 1899.
