This cabinet card captures a fabulous image of a father and daughter. The photographer is Urlin, of the Monmouth Art Gallery, in Columbus, Ohio. Both father and daughter look co0l and relaxed as they pose for the camera. They are nicely dressed and are wearing broad brimmed hats. The young girl is wearing a ring and a brooch and the father has a pocket watch. The cabinet card itself is of deluxe design. The card is deeply embossed and padded to give it a 3D appearance. The name of the photographer has a gold gild background. The reverse of the cabinet card has an inscription stating, “Will and Alice Crew, McConnelsville, Ohio”. Perhaps father and daughter were visiting Columbus from their home in McConnelsville; when they decided to sit for their portrait. The photographer is George C. Urlin. He was born in Canada and was an active photographer from 1875 or earlier until 1887. During 1888 and 1889 he worked in Cleveland, Ohio. He resumed his photography career in Columbus in 1889. During his tenure as a photographer, he received numerous medals from various Ohio State Fairs. To see other photographs by Urlin, click on Cabinet Card Gallery’s category “Photographer: Urlin”.
