PORTRAIT OF AN ATTRACTIVE WOMAN IN WATERTOWN, NEW YORK

A pretty young woman poses for her portrait in this cabinet card photograph taken by Jacob C. Banta of Watertown, New York. The woman is wearing her hair up and a serious expression as she stands by an open ornate gate. Mr Banta can be found in the 1880 US census. He was born around 1832 and lived with his wife Sarah and 21 year-old daughter Lillie in Watertown. At the time of the census he was working as a photographer and local business directories indicate that he kept that employment until at least 1891. This cabinet card portrait is in very good condition (see scans).
