YOUNG WOMAN IN A ROWBOAT GOING NOWHERE

This Cabinet Card portrays a young woman rowing a boat. This photograph was made using props or perhaps employing “trick photography” techniques. The lily pads certainly appear to be an “after thought”.  Perhaps a visitor to this site can explain how the photograph was technically produced. The photographer is  J.  F. Suddard of Fall River, Massachusetts. Suddard operated a studio in Fall River between 1890 and 1905. Earlier, he had a studio in Providence, Rhode Island.
