This cabinet card portrait of an unidentified young woman was taken by R. F. Uren whose studio was located at 79 St. Paul St., St. Catharines, Ontario. This tintype was among the memorabilia in the possession of the Rick Bell family of St. Catharines. Relatives of the Bell family are descended from former Black slaves from the United States.

What a gorgeous outfit, and fascinating information too!

I must stop here, but I want to look at all of your pictures. They are wonderful and fascinating and make me ask, Are you writing a book on African Americans? Magnificent photography!

I apologize for just now seeing your comment .... thank you so very much!! I agree her outfit is absolutely stunning. No, I'm not writing a book I simply enjoy posting images and stories on online sites such as this. Thanks again!
