This cabinet card portrait features a pretty young woman posing for a photograph at the Crowell Gallery in Mount Vernon, Ohio. Her hair is wrapped in a bun and she is wearing a lace scarf and a pin. The photographer of this photo portrait is Fred S. Crowell. The Cabinet Card Gallery (CCG) has at least two other photographs by Mr Crowell. Based on the photographs in the CCG collection, he was a talented photographer. His name can  be found in the 1880 census. He was born in 1844 and lived with his wife Ella, and their three children. Other research reveals that there was a Fred Crowell from the Mount Vernon area who enlisted in the 142nd Regiment of the Ohio Infantry during the Civil War. He served only during 1864. Crowell trained as a photographer under Anna Payne, and worked in the profession in Norwalk, Sandusky, and Cleveland, Ohio. He then opened his own studio in Fredericktown in 1866. In 1869, he moved to Mount Vernon where he established a photography studio that was in business until at least 1889. This cabinet card photo is in good condition (see scans)
