A cute little girl poses for her portrait at the Osborn studio in Binghamton, New York. She is wearing a collar pin as well as a bow in her blonde hair. Her eyes are wide open as she tries to cooperate with the photographer. Emerson Osborn (1843-1916) appears in the 1870 US census and is listed as a photographer. He was married to Hannah E. Osborn (1843-1928) and the couple had three children. Anthony’s Photographic Bulletin (1885) reported that Osborn bought the Singhi gallery in Binghamton and made significant improvements. To see an image from Will G. Singhi’s gallery, place his name in the cabinet card gallery search box. The 1900 US census reveals that Osborn and his son, Fred, were working as photographers but by time of the 1910 US census, Emerson was listed as retired. Emerson died in 1916 and is buried in Binghamton’s Spring Forest Cemetery along with his wife and one of his children. To view other images by this photographer, click on the category “Photographer: Osborn (Binghamton NY)”.  SOLD
