PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN IN FOSTORIA, OHIO

This cabinet card features a portrait of a pretty young woman with luminous eyes. She is wearing a rose corsage and a serious expression. Note the photographer’s expert use of light in this photograph. This portrait was taken at the studio of James Ball. He operated his photography business in Fostoria, Ohio. The city of Fostoria is located in the northwestern part of the state. The town was created in 1854. During the end of the nineteenth century, at the time that this photo was taken; the city was the home of over a dozen glass factories. The glass factories concentrated there because of the discovery of natural gas in the area and the easy access to the many railroads that ran through the town. The photographer of this image, James Ball , was born in Ohio in 1843 or 1844. Ball married his wife, Anna, in 1875. He was an active Fostoria photographer between at least 1880 until at least 1903. Ball died in Fostoria, in 1905. This cabinet card portrait is in very good condition (see scans).
