PORTRAIT OF STAGE ACTRESS VILLA KNOX IN ROLE OF DAISY BLOSSOM (PHOTOGRAPH BY JACOB SCHLOSS)

by bmarshphd

knox f_0003This cabinet card has a lot to say. First, the photograph features an actress named Villa Knox. She appeared in productions in the United States, England, and probably a number of other places. She acted in at least two Broadway shows. She appeared in the musical comedy "Boccaccio" (1898) and in "Apollo, or, The Oracle of Delphi" (1891). Second, the photographer of this image is the well known celebrity photographer, Jacob Schloss. At the time that this photograph was taken, the Schloss studio was located at 467 and 469 Fifth Avenue, between 40th and 41st Streets in New York City.. To view more of his photographs click on the category "Photographer: Schloss". A third aspect of this photograph is that it has the pencilled name "Daisy Blossom" on the front of the card. Thanks to a little luck in my research, I learned that "Daisy Blossom" is a character in a play called "London Day by Day" (1893) which was reviewed by The Sydney Mail. This portrait likely captures Miss Knox in costume for that roleThe fourth interesting fact about this image is the stamp appearing on the front of the card that states "Vignettes All Around For Segar Label". It appears that this photograph was used as a vignette photograph for a cigar box label. The last feature I will mention concerning this image is that it has all the signs of once residing in someones photograph album. The cabinet card truly tells a number of stories and is in good condition.

TWO YOUNG WOMEN POSE BY AN OPEN BOOK IN NEU-RUPPIN, GERMANY

by bmarshphd

Two lovely young women pose next to an open picture book which is sitting atop a stool-like table. The woman are nearly identically dressed. Their style of fashion is conservative. Their heads are close to each other and tilted toward each other. This pose suggests that there is some intimacy between them. Perhaps they are sisters. The photographer of this image is W. Gerlich and some of his photography medals are exhibited at the bottom front of this photograph. The medals are from exhibits held in 1900 and 1901 and this image likely was produced shortly after that time. W. Gerlich conducted his photography business in "Neu Ruppin", which was a Prussian town in Brandenburg, Germany. The studio was located on a street named for "Paradeplatz", or Parade Square, which was located in downtown Zurich, Switzerland.
