Photographer James Alba Bostwick of New York City photographed this cabinet card portrait of a well dressed couple. The gentleman looks quite austere in his long coat and derby hat. The young woman has a very engaging expression. She is wearing an interesting hat, fur trimmed collar and sleeve cuffs, as well as gloves. Note the ruffle bottom of her skirt. She definitely has earned the title of “fashionista”. To view other photographs by this photographer and to learn more about him, click on the category “Photographer: Bostwick”.   (SOLD)bostwick 2
