WOMAN IN THE LIGHT, PHOTOGRAPHED IN ALBANY, NEW YORK

This cabinet card features a young woman posing for her photograph  at the studio of Charles S. Rabineau of Albany, New York. The woman is wearing earrings and an interesting necklace. The necklace chain appears to be cloth and it is holding, what appears to be, a coin. The woman appears to have  grey hair but this may actually be the result of photographic or development error. Rabineau did an interesting job of utilizing light in this cabinet card. He was a pioneer Albany photographer, and when he died at age 73 in 1916, he had been a photographer for over 50 years.
