LUCKY LADY IN STEUBENVILLE, OHIO

This cabinet card is a portrait of a young woman photographed by Harry, who advertised himself as the “leading photographer” of Steubenville, Ohio. The woman is wearing a ribbon around her collar as well as two pins. One pin is a horseshoe while the other appears to be some sort of clover. Perhaps these are good luck charms. Albert S. Harry (1848-1904) was born in Ohio and worked as a photographer in Wooster, Ohio through much of the 1870’s. In 1878, he settled in Steubenville and operated a studio until at least 1893. He later worked as a photographer in Brooklyn, New York.
