Portrait of Sarah Crowther


A full-length studio portrait of Sarah Turner Crowther (1832-1915). Sarah immigrated from England to the United States at the age of 17. She moved to Washington County, Oregon in the late 1880s with her husband Israel Crowther, a weaver, and several of their children. They lived in Forest Grove for 25 years. In this photograph, she is pictured wearing a dark dress, a hat, shawl, purse and eyeglasses. She is standing on a fur rug, and behind her is a painted studio backdrop of a parlor scene. This photograph was likely taken in Forest Grove around 1900-1909.
