Photographed July 20, 1912
Rufus W Holsinger came to Charlottesville, Virginia from Pennsylvania in the late 1880’s and established a photographic business. His “University Studio” soon became the leading studio in town with a reputation for first-quality work. Holsinger himself served at various times as president and treasurer of the Photographic Association of Virginia and the Carolinas.
On July 20, 1912 Holsinger took this photograph of Carrie Coles in his Charlottesville studio.
