Brewster (120 Main St. Montpelier, VT)
Interior view of the photographic studio
Courtesy of Capitol Gallery (Fall 2007 Auction, #53)
Cabinet card of a photographer's studio, identified on the mount as Brewster, 120 Main St. Montpelier, VT, 1897. The room contains a large lens on the desk, fold-out albums on a fainting couch, a sample frame below the window, and a wicker posing chair. On the wall is a large crayon portrait with a cabinet card tucked in the bottom left corner. Most likely this portrait was done from the photograph. A calendar on the wall below the light appears to read September, and a clock on the desk gives the time as 9:40. There is also a studio stand to the right of the desk, possibly to hold a reflector.
