Portrait by Albuquerque female photographer Emma Albright

A cabinet card portrait by Albuquerque female photographer, Mrs. (Emma) Albright

It is unusual to find 19th century photographs by a female photographer and, extra fun to find this one by a photographer from New Mexico. This is an albumen photograph on an oversized cabinet card. The stamped verso reads, Mrs. Albright’s art parlors, Albuquerque, N.M. Also known as Mrs. John G. Albright, Emma L. Luse, or Mrs. Franc Luse Albright. She worked between 1850 and 1912, so this photograph is circa 1890s. There is no information on the sitter. Includes a clipped advertisement. The photo paper is 8 5/8″ x 6 3/8″, the card is 9 3/4″ x 6 3/4.”
