PORTRAIT OF AN UNIDENTIFIED ACTRESS BY OTTO SARONY

This close-up cabinet card portrait features a pretty woman wearing a lace dress. She is posing at the Otto Sarony Company studio and it a good guess that she was an actress considering Sarony's history of photographing stage personalities. Perhaps the cabinet card gallery's vast unpaid research department (it's amazingly informed and helpful visitors) will be able to identify the subject of this photograph. To view other photographs by the Sarony studio, click on the category (Photographer: Sarony). Otto Sarony was the son of celebrated photographer Napoleon Sarony.

HANDSOME BEARDED MAN IN PORTLAND, OREGON

The subject of this portrait is quite the handsome gentleman and  has a wonderful beard. To view more interesting beards, click on the category "Beards (Only the Best). The reverse of the photograph has a printed stamp indicating that the photographer of this image was located in Portland, Oregon. In addition, the back of the cabinet card shows a medal for photography from the Oregon State Agricultural Society which was issued in 1881. Born in Illinois in 1844, Frank G. Abell moved to California with his parents in 1857. In 1862, at the age of 18, he joined the firm of William Shew in San Francisco, where he spend four years learning the art and business of photography. He opened his own gallery, Abell's Star Gallery, in Stockton, California in 1866. The next year he moved back to San Franisco and then worked in such towns as Grass Valley, Red Bluff and Yreka. In 1877 he pursued his craft in Roseburg, Oregon and from 1878 to 1888 he was based in Portland. He must have left his heart in San Francisco because he returned there once again. His indecisiveness was evident when he returned to Portland where he worked between 1897 and 1907. When his health failed, he moved to Tacoma, Washington where he died in 1910.

PARENTS AND THEIR FIVE CHILDREN IN SAN PAULO, BRAZIL

by bmarshphd

FAMILY PORTRAIT_0005This family portrait features a mother and father along with their five children. Mom and one of her daughters are holding umbrellas while dad balances a book on his knee. The eldest son is wearing a sailor suit and has his arm wrapped around his little brother who is sitting on a tricycle. Another brother stands alone on the opposite side of the wall than where the rest of his family is located. Does this have some psychological meaning, or is this just where he was posed by the photographer. The photographer is the Perez studio which was located in San Paulo, Brazil.

MOTHER AND DAUGHTER SIDE BY SIDE

MOM AND DAUGHTER_0006A mother and daughter pose for their portrait at an unidentified photography studio. On second thought, the young woman and the child seen in this image may actually be siblings. Looking at the way they are posed, I would guess that they share a sibling relationship rather than a parent-child relationship. The subjects certainly exhibit a family resemblance.  The pair are nicely dressed. The little girl is wearing a beaded necklace, possibly pearls.
