ADELE PURVIS ONRI: BURLESQUE PERFORMER (NEWSBOY ACTRESS SERIES)

by bmarshphd

onri_0006Newsboy published this cabinet card portrait of stage performer Adele Purvis Onri. The photograph was produced to be utilized as a premium with the sale of tobacco products. It was number 110 in a series. This somewhat risque portrait captures Miss Onri in action, but what kind of action? Research reveals that she was a burlesque performer.  Her name appears in a number of sources but generally articles containing her name provide little information about her. Apparently she was not a major theater personality. The New York Times (1893) announced her appearance as part of the cast of "Lovely Meteor" at the Eden Musee. Onri makes another appearance in the N Y Times (1897) and in this article the reporter describes her appearance at Koster & Bials Theater. The writer asserts that "one of the most attractive features of the long and interesting bill was the performance of a graceful young woman called Adele Purvis-Onri who did some difficult posing on the slack wire, and intricate juggling and serpentine dancing or a revolving  globe".  Reading between the lines, it is clear that Onri was performing burlesque acts of a risque nature. The New York Times (1902) notes that she appeared in vaudeville at the Twenty-third Street Theater and was a "sensational dancer".  The reverse of this cabinet card is stamped indicating it was owned by "Culver Pictures" of New York City. The Culver company charged newspapers and magazines for the use of photographs owned by Culver. To view more photographs by Newsboy, click on the category "Photographer: Newsboy".

FASHIONABLE DREAMY EYED YOUNG WOMAN IN BUFFALO, NEW YORK

by bmarshphd

buffalowoman_0003A lovely young woman wearing a stunning ruffled dress poses for her photograph at the Stuart studio in Buffalo, New York. She holds a feather covered hat on her lap. The woman is posed in a way where she is looking at the camera, but she appears to be lost in her thoughts. Research found a genealogical site that identifies the photographer as being Calvin A. Stuart (1844-1925) who was active in the Buffalo area between 1874 and sometime in the 1880's. Stuart's wife, Helen, also worked in the photography business.

MUSICIAN AND LARGE STRING INSTRUMENT IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

by bmarshphd

chicago musician_0002

A musician poses for his portrait at the Rocher studio in Chicago, Illinois. He is playing a large stringed instrument with a bow. I can not identify the instrument and assistance from knowledgable cabinet card gallery visitors would be appreciated. Note the fireplace and fancy chair in the background. The musician is unidentified but is likely someone professional, and not a random person using the instrument as a prop for their portrait. In fact, Henry Rocher (1826-1887) was known for being a celebrity photographer. However, most of all, he is considered the one Chicago photographer who could compete technically and artistically with the great photographers in New York City. The great celebrity photographer Sarony, may have had an advantage by possessing exceptional ability to pose his subjects. Rocher's nephew and disciple, Max Platz, was also quite a talented and successful photographer. Rocher was known to employ a number of women as operators, including "Miss Garrity" who was a successful photographer in Louisville, Kentucky and in Chicago. To view portraits by Miss Garrity, click on the category "Photographer: Garrity". Rocher came to the US in 1856. He arrived from Germany, where he had originally learned photography.He was one of the founders of the Photographers Association of America (1880).
