SARAH RAMODEL AT 89 YEARS OLD IN PROVIDENCE RHODE ISLAND

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.

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.
