Mrs. Ben Rist

Mrs. Ben Rist

From a photo album belonging to the Benjamin Orbin family of Broad Ford, Fayette Co., PA. Given to Thomas Ridenour by Bernice Orbin (1903-1989) of Uniontown, PA.



"Victorian Fashions: A Pictorial Archive" by Carol Belanger Grafton has a picture from 1866 of a woman with a coat and hairstyle almost exactly like this.

Also, if you know the photographer, you can look him up in "Directory of Pennsylvania Photographers, 1839-1900" by Linda A. Ries and Jay W. Ruby.
