TWO ADORABLE CHILDREN POSE FOR CARL PIETZNER IN OLMUTZ, AUSTRIA

by bmarshphd

PIETZNER TWO

Carl Pietzner  produced this wonderful portrait of two children posing at his Olmutz, Austria studio. The kids are adorable. Big sister is holding her sibling's hand who has a smile wider than the Danube River. The reverse of the photograph has a printed advertisement for the studio that states "Jnhaber: Adolf Muller". Thanks to google translation, the entry indicates that Mr. Muller was the owner of the studio. It seems to indicate that Pietzner is the photographer but not the owner of the studio. Perhaps a knowledgeable visitor to the cabinet card gallery can clarify this issue.  To learn more about Pietzner and to view more of his photographs, click on the category "Photographer: Pietzner".

THEATER ACTRESS MISS ALMA STANLEY (PORTRAIT BY MARC GAMBIER)

by bmarshphd

ACTRESS BY GAMBIER_0002Theater actress Miss Alma Stanley is the subject of this cabinet card portrait by talented photographer Marc Gambier. To view other photographs by Gambier, click on the category "Photographer: Gambier.  In this photograph, Miss Stanley is in costume and wearing a military style uniform with sash and sword. She appears to be saluting or staring into the distance and shielding her eyes from a fictional sun. This full body photograph highlights her thin waist. The photograph is a bit risque for its time. The backdrop and the scenery are expertly done. She truly appears to be standing outdoors. Alma Stanley (1853-1931) was a multi-talented English entertainer. She was an actress, dancer, comedienne, and singer. She appeared in such roles as Little Don Caesar de Bazan. A theater magazine reported that Miss Stanley was the daughter of an English army officer who named her Alma in honor of  the battle in the Crimea War. The battle of Alma occurred in 1854 and Alma Stanley was born in 1853 so the story of how she received her name likely falls under the realm of  "public relations". She made her first stage appearance in Milan in 1872 and her first English appearance in the following year. Her New York debut occurred in 1880. She performed with D'Oyly Carte  Opera Company as well as with Tony Pastor's Broadway Theater. Alma Stanley died in a London jail cell. She was being held on a charge of drunkenness when she died of  "natural causes". At the time of her incarceration, her jailers did not know her identity.

LOVELY YOUNG COUPLE SIT AT TABLE WITH UNIQUE TABLECLOTH IN FAYETTE, OHIO

by bmarshphd

marsh photo_0005This photograph is included in the cabinet card gallery more for the photographers name than for any particular merit of the image. The photographer of this cabinet card is C. Burr Marsh and he and I share the same last name. As a result, I've adopted him as a ancestor and include his work in the Cabinet Card Gallery. You can see more of his photographs and learn more about him by clicking on the category "Photographer: Marsh". The reverse of this photograph indicates that it was 1888 when Marsh photographed this couple in his Fayette, Ohio studio. This image is features a lovely young couple sitting at a table that is topped with two books laying side by side. The table cloth in this photograph is interesting and unique. I do not recall seeing a similar patterned table cloth on other cabinet cards. Perhaps a visitor to this site can give us better understanding of this type of tablecloth.

A WOMAN AND HER LABRADOR RETRIEVER IN HONESDALE, PENNSYLVANIA

by bmarshphd
lady and a labJ A Bodie of Honesdale, Pennsylvania photographed this lady and her lab at the Bodie Art Studio located on the Keystone Block. The woman is holding a wonderful large hat featuring what appears to be long feathers. The lady and her canine companion are posed atop bales of hay. The dog is likely a labrador retriever and he or she has very expressive eyes that seem sad and lonely and begging for attention. The photographer of this cabinet card is either Joseph Alonzo Bodie (1852-1935) or his son, Joseph A. Bodie Jr.. Junior followed his father into the family business. The senior Bodie learned photography from E. I. Stearns and in 1875, Bodie bought half interest in Stearns's studio. By 1878, Bodie became the sole proprietor of the studio. The Bulletin of Photography (1912) reported that Bodie's studio was totally destroyed by fire and the loss was valued at $2500.00 and was only partially covered by insurance. In a later issue, the same journal stated that Bodie had rebuilt the studio.
