This cabinet card portrait features a girl peering out a large open window. She appears to be in her teenage years. The young lady is well dressed and well coiffed. She is wearing earrings, a collar pin, and a solemn expression. This photograph was taken at Murray’s studio, located in Brockville, Ontario, Canada. I located a blog, “The Brockville History Album” (Curated by Doug Grant) which may shed some light about the photographer. The site exhibits early photographs (circa 1880) of two of Brockville’s churches. The credited photographer was George B. Murray. At one point in time, George was partners with his son, Alex L. Murray. They operated a studio named “Murray & Son”. Alex was also known for being one of the founding members of the Brockville Cycling Club. A studio photo of Alex atop a high-wheel bicycle can be found on the afore mentioned Brockville history site. George Murray purchased the photo studio from A. C. McIntyre in 1869. He and his son were natives of Montreal. Alex, according to a business directory, was one of the most popular young men in Brockville. He was active in a number of athletic organizations. His involvement included participation in the town’s lacrosse, snow shoe, and toboggan clubs. Brockville is a city in Eastern Ontario. It is located in the Thousand Islands region. This cabinet card has excellent clarity and is in excellent condition (see scans).
