TWO WISCONSIN DANDIES VISIT THE PHOTOGRAPHER IN RICE LAKE, WISCONSIN

by bmarshphd

Two well dressed men pose for their portrait at T. H. Webster's studio in Rice Lake, Wisconsin. The fellow with the walking stick is wearing striped pants and a top hat. The other gentleman is wearing a rather odd hat. Perhaps one of the Cabinet Card Gallery's visitors will be able to inform the rest of us about the unusual hat. These Wisconsin dandies appear to be enjoying themselves while having their image taken. T. H. Webster is listed by internet photographer directory Langdon Road as operating in Rice Lake during the 1880's. However, another source reports that he sold his studio to photographer Homer C. Reed in 1893.

THEATER ACTRESS: MABEL POTTER PHOTOGRAPHED BY SCHLOSS IN NEW YORK CITY

by bmarshphd

mabel potter_0006

Celebrity photographer Jacob Schloss captures actress Mabel Potter in this cabinet card portrait. For the time period, Miss Potter is assuming a rather risque position. Schloss operated his studio in New York City. This cabinet card holds a copyright from 1894. To view other photographs by Schloss, click on the category "Photographer: Schloss". The New York Times (1892) has a brief article with the theatrical news that Miss Potter was about to appear in "The Vice Admiral" which was a "nautical comedy" scheduled to run at the Casino Theater. A photograph of Potter, very similar to the one above (likely taken at the same sitting), appears in Munsey's Magazine (1895). Schloss is given credit as the photographer. It is announced that she was appearing in "Little Christopher Columbus" as one of Captain Slammer's daughters. The article adds that she first appeared on the stage four years earlier with the McCaull Company in "Boccaccio" at Palmer's Theater.

YOUNG AND ATTRACTIVE BRIDAL COUPLE IN NEW BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS

by bmarshphd

This photograph has significant damage but it finds it's way to the cabinet card gallery because it features an attractive and very young looking bride and groom as well as an interesting photographer. Both of the subjects are holding formal gloves.  The photographer of this image is M Goulart of New Bedford, Massachusetts. Manuel Goulart is a noted historical figure in American photography. In fact, he and his brother Jose Goulart were the subject of a book, "Two Brothers Goulart: Photography in New Bedford and the Azores" (1996). The Azorean brothers became interested in photography in the 1870's. They were from the Portuguese island of Faial in the Azores and came to New Bedford in 1889. Between 1892 and at least 1899, Manuel Goulart's studio was located at 109 South Sixth Street in New Bedford.  New Bedford had a significant population of people of Portuguese ethnicity. It is likely that the bride and groom in this portrait were part of that Portuguese community. The brothers are noted for their late 19th century and early 20th century photographs from the Azores, Madeira, and Portugal. The New Bedford Whaling Museum has a large collection of Goulard photographs.

PORTRAIT OF A NEW ENGLAND GENTLEMAN

by bmarshphd

VERMONT MAN_0001The identity of the gentleman pictured in this cabinet card portrait is Caleb Lysander. The previous owner of this image reported that it comes from an album that makes this positive identification. The subject has an interesting billy goat beard. To view other notable beards, click on the category "Beards (Only the Best)". The cabinet card was produced by the Howe studio which was located in Brattleboro, Vermont. A Brattleboro history internet site includes a biography and obituary of Mr. Caleb Lysander Howe. The article states that upon his death, his daughter, Mrs Mary Howe-Lavin was informed via cable to Paris where she was performing as a singer. Howe was born in Dummerston, Vermont, in 1811. At age two, he moved with his parents to Dover, Vermont. His father worked as a farmer and had a second business providing transportation between Dover and Boston. Howe worked on the family farm until he was about sixteen when he went to learn a trade as a machinist. At age eighteen he moved to Brattleboro to work in a machine shop. While in the role of machinist, he worked as a watchmaker and producer of jewelry. He married Miss Cynthia Sherman who was from Dover. In 1838 he leased a farm in Dover. He became interested in photography in about 1846 and soon purchased a photography studio where he started out producing daguerreotypes. He then purchased a four wheel car for three hundred dollars and added traveling photographer to his job description. He did most of his work within his county. It is reported that he made a profit of between one hundred and two hundred dollars a month. He came to Brattleboro in 1856 and purchased a photography gallery. He became quite successful as a photographer. In 1880 his son, John C. Howe became associated with the business and the studio became known as  C. L. Howe & Son. The senior Mr. Howe was highly regarded throughout the county as a teacher of vocal music and as a tenor singer. He died in 1895. There is a possibility that this is a self portrait. In other words, Caleb Lysander Howe may be the subject and the photographer.  Research found an engraved portrait of Howe that looks similar to this cabinet card image. As a side note, research found a number of references to C. L. Howes prima donna daughter. The book "Picturesque Brattleboro: With Over Two Hundred Illustrations (1894) describes Mary Howe-Lavin as a "beautiful songstress" and states that "there is something indescribably fascinating in the singing and personal appearance of this charming woman". References reveal that she performed in a number of major cities in Germany. Her second wedding was announced in the New York Times (1905).

AN ADORABLE CHILD IN BURLINGTON, IOWA

BURLINGTON KID_0005

The child in this cabinet card portrait is a real cutie pie. Whether the darling child is a boy or a girl is anyone's guess but I vote girl. She is wearing a lace collar and button up boots. Her hairstyle includes bangs and her head is covered by a straw hat. The photographer is J. H. Reynolds of Burlington, Iowa. Reynolds established his gallery in Burlington in 1872 and it was at some time (including 1888) located at 211 1/2 Jefferson Street. Reynolds was born in Warren County, New York in 1842. In 1863 he moved to Oshkosh, Wisconsin where he studied photography. In the fall of 1863 he enlisted as a private in the 8th Wisconsin Infantry (Company H). He participated in the Red River campaign and then returned to Vicksburg. In the fall of 1864 he was discharged for physical disability after contacting disease while soldiering in the swamps of Louisiana. He then went to New York City where he worked as a photographer for six years until he returned to Burlington to open his gallery. In 1873 he married Miss May Wheeler from Mount Vernon, Iowa. Reynolds was a Mason and a member of the Knight of Pythias.

A MOTHER'S LOVE IN WILLIAMSPORT, PENNSYLVANIA

by bmarshphd

momandbaby_0009

A mother's love is an invisible phenomenon. However, a mothers love is visible to a camera as the Dean studio of Williamsport, Pennsylvania demonstrates in this image. This portrait captures a loving mother holding her precious young child. The baby is wearing a long gown and the mother is wearing a ring and earrings. This mother's commitment and affection toward her child radiates from this image. The baby's expression seems to be one of displeasure at going through the ordeal of having his/her portrait taken. If Williamsport, Pennsylvania sounds like a familiar name to you, its likely because the town hosts the Little League World Series. The baseball tournament has been held there since 1947. William F. Dean was born in Canadaigua, New York in 1856.He and his family moved to Williamsport in 1867. He started his work life in his father's mercantile business but in 1883 he and a partner opened a photography studio. The studio was called Dean & Cornwall and in 1887 Cornwall retired.. Dean's photography business grew to the point that he had six assistants and a contract to be the exclusive photographer for 13 furniture factories. Dean died in 1899.
