This cabinet card portrait features a lovely young woman holding an open book or magazine. She is nicely dressed and has accessorized herself with a bracelet, collar pin, and broach. She is displaying what appears to be a half smile. This photograph was taken at the Hardy Studio in Boston, Massachusetts. Amory Nelson Hardy (1835-1911) was born in Cumberland, Maine. He was married to Angeline Davis (1833-1920). In the beginning of his photography career he worked in Bucksport, Maine. He then moved to Boston and had a studio on Washington Street (1868, 1879-1887) and Winter Street (1873-1878). These dates are only a partial representation of his career. This photograph was taken at the Washington Street studio. To view other photographs by Hardy, click on the category “Photographer: Hardy”.   SOLD

  1. You’re not getting as much credit as you deserve for all the work you put into this page. I used to able able through Yahoo mail click on the image and it would take me to your sight with a larger image. It’s not clickable anymore for at least 1 year now. I view it all through the mail. Something to figure out. As always interesting.
