SARAH RAMODEL AT 89 YEARS OLD IN PROVIDENCE RHODE ISLAND

by bmarshphd
OLD RI LADY_0001An older woman suspiciously eyes the photographer as she poses for her portrait at the Rose Studio in Providence, Rhode Island. The photographer did an excellent job of capturing the woman's face and it's lines of aging. I would be remiss to not mention that she looks younger than her years. The subject of this photograph is identified in penciled script below the photographer's name. "Sarah Ramodel" was 89 years old at the time of this portrait. Research yielded no information about this subject. The photographer, P. H. Rose operated his studio inside the Conrad Building. Advertising on the reverse of the cabinet card indicates that Rose opened his studio in 1886. A sketch of the Conrad Building can be found below.

THE “MURRAY SISTERS” BEING ADORABLE IN YORK, PENNSYLVANIA

by bmarshphd
MURRAY SISTERSThe "Murray Sisters" assume an adorable pose at the Shadle & Busser studio in York, Pennsylvania. The girls appear to be entertainers, likely singers, dancers, or a combination of both. The sisters were probably teenagers at the time of this portrait. Research yielded no identifying information about these photogenic girls. A casual review of theater periodicals (1908-1913) uncovered  an act called the "Murray Sisters" but it is not certain that they are one and the same as the girls in this image. This act toured the country and the sisters were described as operatic singers. The oldest sister was named Marion and the youngest was named Vic or Victoria.

MUTTON CHOPS MAN IN LEOMINSTER, MASSACHUSETTS

by bmarshphd
A distinguished older gentleman poses for his portrait at the Richardson studio in Leominster, Massachusetts. He is nicely dressed and wearing a wonderful necktie. He has wonderful silver mutton chops that the photographer has captured effectively in this image. Lucius Augustus Richardson was born in Leomister in 1840. After completing his education, he went to work as printer for four years. He then learned photography and began working as a travelling photographer throughout New England. He then spent three years in Boston followed by working three years in Ashland. In 1860 he married Louisa Fitch of Maine. In 1873 he opened a photography studio in Leomister. His daughter Lillian Janette Richardson worked in the studio as a retoucher and printer of photographs.

SLOUCHING DAD PULLS YOUNG DAUGHTER ON A SLED IN BELLEVUE, OHIO

by bmarshphd

SLED DADThis studio portrait captures a slouching dad pulling his daughter on a sled. Dad is wearing a suit, hat, and gloves while the child is bundled up in a winter jacket and warm winter cap. She is holding the sleds steering rope. She won't go far on the sled considering it is atop straw instead of snow. Dad has assumed a very awkward slouching position for this photograph. Perhaps he is disabled. It is also possible that the photographer did a poor job of posing the father. In fact, the photographer, S. P. Gaugler, shows little skill in his production of this photograph. The subject of this photograph is actually the owner of the Bellevue, Ohio studio that produced this image. According to the previous owner of this photograph, the album that this cabinet card was taken from indicated that the subject is Simon Peter Gaugler and the little girl is his oldest daughter, Edith. It is surprising that a photographer would do such a poor job of posing for this photograph. The 1880 US census lists Simon Gaugler (1840-1915) as residing in Bellevue, Washington and working as a photographer. He was forty years old and living with his 27 year-old wife Lorinda. The couple had married in 1874 and were raising a four year-old daughter (Edith) with the help of a live-in servant. The 1900 census found the couple still residing in Bellevue and living with their 15 year-old daughter (Ethel). Simon continued to work as a photographer.  By the time 1910 arrived, Simon and Lorinda were living in Lyme, Ohio with their daughter Ethel and her husband John. Simon was still operating a photo gallery even though he was seventy years old. In 1914 Lorinda died in Bellevue and a year later, Simon passed away in Atlanta, Georgia. He had moved to Georgia to be with his daughter Edith, the adult version of the little girl pictured above. Edith Gaugler (1876-1960) had become Mrs. Frederick Schanck on 9/10/99. At the time of their marriage, she was a school teacher and her groom was a telegraph operator and clerk. Census data reveals that the couple lived in Lyme, Ohio (1900), and moved to Atlanta, Georgia sometime before 1920. The couple still lived in Atlanta at the time of the 1940 US census.

STAGE ACTRESS CHRISTINE BLESSING IN COSTUME PLAYING A RISQUE CUPID

by bmarshphd

CHRISTINE BLESSING_0004This cabinet card features a portrait of actress Christine Blessing. The cabinet card was produced by Newsboy (#124 of a series) as a tobacco product premium. For some unknown reason, a previous owner of the photograph apparently attempted to erase the Newsboy logo from the photograph. Miss Blessing is captured in this image playing the role of cupid. She is holding a bow and arrow. This cabinet card is risque for its era. The actress is wearing a dress so short that it looks like the dressmaker ran out of material just after beginning her work.  Miss Blessing is known for her theater work but also for her role in an early film titled "Dope" (1914). Her theatrical performances are the subject of a number of New York Times articles. These productions include "The Merry World" (1895), "The Maid in the Moon" (1899), "The County Chairman" (1904), and "The Bachelor" (1909), The New York Times (1893) was critical of her performance at Koster & Bials Music Hall. The newspaper stated that she had performed ballads and that Christine Blessing was "undoubtedly a blessing in disguise". She was clearly part of a vaudeville performance that night as one of the other acts was a boxing kangaroo. The reviewer bemoaned that vaudeville performances had adverse effects on legitimate theater.
