I believe this to be a later photograph of Susie King Taylor? Thoughts on this please !
It comes from a large 8" x 10" glass negative taken by photographer Samuel W. Bridgham, who was a very, very wealthy man whom had residences in New York and New England
She is pictured here in 1888 at the age of 40 dressed in a military bodice. This would be befitting a WRC volunteer.
There does exist one other albumin 8" x 10" 1880's print of this photograph in a private collection with a blind stamp for Samuel W. Bridgham.
"During the civil war, in the fall of 1861, Mr. Bridgham became a member of Company K, Seventh Regiment, New York Sate Militia, and served his time as an active member of this regiment. He also served on the board as a member of United States Sanitary Commission Supplies for the Wounded.
After the close of the war he rose to the rank of captain, where he joined the ordnance office staff of General William G. Ward, commander of the First Brigade. Captain Bridgham served at this post for a number of years.
He held various officer positions in the New York Camera Club, including president, and was on a number of the club's exhibition committees, as well as exhibiting his own photographs there. The New York Camera Club is the oldest such camera club in the U.S. Alfred Steiglitz was a member and the editor of the organization's publication, Camera Notes.
As a memorial to the memory of his honored father and mother, Mr. Bridgham, in 1903, gave to the town of East Providence its first free public library, which is located at East Providence Centre, and is known as the "Bridgham Memorial."
In the census of 1900 he lists a servant residing with his family named Elizabeth Taylor, who was born in 1848. Perhaps she was related to Susie Taylor, or her husbands side of the family ?
