Attenbury, Etta 1981-835-35

John Quincy Reed’s Portrait Photograph of Jennie Whitney & Etta Attenbury, c. 1880-1885

THE PHOTOGRAPHER/ PHOTOGRAPHIC STUDIO:

Photographer: John Quincy Reed (b. 1842, Massachusetts, d. 1902)

Active in Petaluma: 1874-1898

Biographical Note: Reed worked from several different studios during his time in Petaluma.  In 1874 his studio was in the “American Hall, Main Street,” thereafter it was “Over Wells, Fargo & Co’s. Ex. Office, Main St” and finally it was “Brick Block, opposite McGuire’s Drug Store, Main Street.”  According to Palmquist, Reed was charged with arson for setting fire to property in Petaluma at the corner of Cleveland and College Avenues.

Bibliography: Palmquist, pgs. 452-53; Mautz, pg.134.

THE SITTER(s):

Name(s): Jennie Whitney & Etta Attenbury

Description: Cabinet card of possibly Jennie (Nancy Jane) Whitney, and Etta Attenbury. The writing on the card says Jennie Whitney, but the women looks more like Jennie's sister Marcella (Ella Whitney). Both women have short bangs that frame their face and bows in their hair. Both women also have large frilly white lace collars pinned at the base of the neck.

Biographical Note: It is unclear whether it is Nancy Jane (Jennie) or Marcella (Ella) in the photo with Etta. Both Nancy Jane and Marcella are daughters of Senator Albion P. Whitney and Susan Eastman. Their siblings include; Calvin, Cleora, Arthur, Leona, Albion, and Clara. Etta Attenbury appears to be a friend of the family as she is in other photos with the Whitney girls.
