This is Deziah Perkins Fanning Tuthill (1874-1949), however this article is not about Deziah. It’s about the photographer, whose name you can see at the bottom of the image. 
This type of photo is called a cabinet card, and if you see enough of them from the Southold area, you’ll notice that a number of them were taken by the Howard family. 
Garrett Williamson Howard (1837-1921) and his wife Mary E. Devoe Howard (1839-1912), and their children moved from Brooklyn to our area, sometime between 1865 -1870. The family first lived in Greenport then moved to Arshamomaque. 
For many years Garrett Howard worked on his own. Then his eldest child, William G. Howard (1861-1915) joined him in the business. Eventually, William married Anna Howard and split off to form his own photography studio, first on Shelter Island, then later in Sag Harbor. 
One of our dearest wishes is to find the records from this business, so we can discover the names of the many photographs that are unlabeled in our collection. So if you know where these records are for the Howards, or for one of their rivals, let us know! Find contact info at the bottom of this email.

We are so pleased to announce that Southold Historical Museum was among the recipients of a Suffolk County Downtown Revitalization grant, which is awarded to help enhance and create more vibrant downtowns.
The grant will be used to replace the sidewalk and a leaning retaining wall in front of the historic Thomas Moore house at the museum’s Maple Lane Complex.
“The wall is leaning toward Route 25 and it needs to be replaced as does the sidewalk in front of it,”
said Deanna Witte-Walker, the executive director of the museum.
