"LEAN ON ME": TWO AFFECTIONATE WOMEN IN NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA

by bmarshphd

AFFECTIONATEWOMEN_0002

" Lean on me, when you're not strong. And I'll be your friend. I'll help you carry on."  This cabinet card portrait brings to mind the lyrics of Bill Withers song "Lean on Me".  The image features two affectionate women (perhaps they're sisters), one seated on a chair while the other is seated on the floor. The young woman on the floor has an open book in her lap and appears to be reading to the second woman. They are posed in an affectionate manner. Both are wearing pretty bows. The photographer is John Harvey and his studio was located in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. After studying photography for two years in New York, Harvey established his Fredericton studio in 1883. He and his wife, Martha, ran the studio until John's death in 1903. Martha Harvey continued operating the studio on her own until she sold it to Frank Pridham in 1917. Pridham and subsequent owners kept the "Harvey Studio" name and the business continues to operate today as one of the oldest photography studios in Canada.

PORTRAIT OF THEATER ACTRESS MAY GALLAGHER ON A BAD HAIR DAY

by bmarshphd

MAY GALLAGHER_0001This cabinet card portrait features stage actress May Gallagher. The photograph was taken by New York City celebrity photographer D. H. Anderson. To view more photographs by the Anderson studio, click on the category "Photographer: Anderson (New York)". Miss Gallagher's hair appears to need a little work. Her curls are quite flat. In fact her hair looks glued down to her head. She is wearing a fancy lace dress. May Gallagher was not a major actress but she received some attention in the theatrical news of her time. Music and Drama (1882) refers to her as "the charming May Gallagher" in their reference to her appearing as Esmeralda at the Madison Square Theater in New York City. The New York Times (1884) mentions Miss Gallagher in their story about the traveling company of the play "Private Secretary".

YOUNG GIRL DRESSED IN MYSTERIOUS COSTUME

by bmarshphd

EXOTIC YOUNG GIRL_0002An exotic looking young girl wearing a mysterious costume, and a big hat poses for her portrait at an unknown studio. She is holding an open fan in a shielding manner. The young woman looks like she may be a teenager. Why is she dressed in this fashion? Is this her wardrobe for a play? Is she going to a costume ball? This image was likely produced in the early part of the cabinet card era and is probably of European origin.

BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID IN ROCKMART, GEORGIA

by bmarshphd

J WHITE AND FRIEND_0003If you doubt that these two gentlemen are really the infamous outlaws, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, then you are correct. This is not a portrait of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid but these guys do give the appearance of a pair of scoundrels.  In reality, this photograph features Joseph C. White and a friend, as someone so kindly informed us in pencilled writing beneath the subjects image. The photographer is J. A. Morris of Rockmart, Georgia.  Research yielded no information about either Joseph C. White or J. A. Morris. Both names are common and preliminary research for biographical information was unproductive.

A WORKMAN POSES IN HIS OVERALLS IN DALLES, OREGON

by bmarshphd

a workman_0004A bearded gentleman poses for his portrait at the D. C. Herrin studio in The Dalles, Oregon. The subject is wearing overalls and his attire indicates that he is a workman of some type. He is resting his hand on a wicker chair and is striking an unusual pose in that his feet are crossed at the knee. The gentleman looks rather bored as he endures the process of having his portrait taken. David C. Herrin began his photography career in Medford, Oregon (1888). He and his photographer wife, Margaret, operated a studio in The Dalles from 1892 through 1898. The couple moved to Portland, Oregon in 1899 and joined Frank G. Abell for establish Abell & Herrin photography studio. David Herrin died in 1909. An interesting side note concerns the name of the town that hosted the above photographic session. The city of "The Dalles" is named after a rock. Dalle is a French word meaning flagstone. The name of the town refers to the basalt rocks carved by the Columbia River on which the town is located.
