SWEET BEJEWELED LASS FROM AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

by bmarshphd

newzealand lass_0001The Edwards studio produced this cabinet card portrait of a pretty Victorian woman. She is wearing a beautiful dress with a lace collar and lace sleeves. She is also wearing a lot of jewelry including a lovely necklace, ring and bracelet. Frederick William Edwards was well known in Auckland for more than his photographic skills. He was also a gifted athlete. According to the Observer (1888), Edwards was one of the best and most popular athletes in and around Auckland. he was "best known in aquatic and gymnastic circles" but he also had an impressive sports career in rowing. In addition, he was  a noted rugby player.

SIX YOUNG BOYS UNHAPPILY POSE FOR THEIR PORTRAIT IN COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

by bmarshphd

When does the fun start? That seems to be the question on the faces of the six young lads posing for their photograph at the studio of Julius Jacobsen, in Copenhagen, Denmark. The boys are dressed up in their finest clothing for this group photograph. Jacobsen took on the ambitious task of photographing six young boys. Jacobsen's studio was located in Copenhagen, Denmark. It appears that the lads were not in a very cooperative mood at the time of the photograph. They appear bored, sleepy and irritated. Some of them have mischievous expressions but probably they are just boys being boys. How are these six kids related in terms of being photographed together. Perhaps they are classmates? They seem somewhat affectionate in the photograph leading one to believe that they knew each other well.

TWO SUPERVISED YOUNG CHILDREN ON HORSEBACK IN UNADILLA, NEW YORK

by bmarshphd

kids on horsesA  uniformed adult holds the reins of two horses occupied by child riders. The kids are wearing riding outfits and are on what appears to be wooded residential property. The photograph was produced by the Wheeler studio in Unadilla, New York. Unadilla is a town located in Ostego County in upstate New York. Research yielded little information about the photographer. It appears that his name is A. Wheeler and he sold his studio to C. H. Phelps in 1900.

YOUNG GIRL WITH A FAR OFF STARE SOMEWHERE IN EUROPE

by bmarshphd

A young girl with a "far away" expression is captured in this cabinet card portrait. She is wearing a white gown and her appearance can be described as "haunting". The previous owner of this photograph asserts that it is of Bulgarian origin and was from a studio in Sofia. The reverse of the image has a printed medal dated 1892 which informs the viewer that the photograph was taken after that date. Assistance from cabinet card gallery visitors would be appreciated in determining the country where this picture originated.

PRETTY ACTRESS WITH POOR POSTURE IN LONDON, ENGLAND (LILIAN CARLYLE)

by bmarshphd

LILLIAN CARLYLE_0004A pretty actress exhibits poor posture as she poses in London, England, at the studio of Ellis & Wallery. The performers name is Miss Lilian Carlyle, and she appears to be pushing her chest out, possibly to amplify her ample bust. Is there a chiropractor in the house? Printing on the reverse of the photograph states that the studio was established in 1884.  The backdrop employed in this portrait is not particularly realistic but at least it doesn't detract from the portrait and allows Miss Carlyle to be the major focus. Alfred Ellis (1854-1930) was an active photographer between 1884 and 1899. He operated a studio on Upper Baker Street in London. He was an original member and served in a number of offices for the Professional Photographers Association. He specialized in theatrical photography and sometimes photographed whole scenes inside his studio. He later went to theaters to photograph performers and play scenes. Ellis was very involved in working for copyright protection in the high courts. Between 1890 and 1900 Stanislaw Julian Ignacy, Count Ostrorog (1863-1935) joined Ellis in a studio partnership. Ostrorog had followed in the footsteps of his father Stanislaw Ostrorog (1830-1890). He also kept his father's "photographer name". The senior Ostorog had changed his name to "Stanislaw Walery" for professional purposes. The last name of "Walery" was derived from his wife's name, "Waleria". The elder Walery had set up his London studio in 1883.
