UNCLE ALBERT: SUBJECT OF A PAUL MCCARTNEY SONG, OWNER OF MAGNIFICENT MUSTACHE, AND HUSBAND OF PHOEBE

MR MUSTACHE_0007

In 1971 Paul and Linda McCartney released a song called "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey". It was a popular song from the "Ram" album. McCartney stated that the song is a tribute to his real life Uncle Albert. Finally, a portrait of Uncle Albert has been discovered and the Cabinet Card Gallery is proud to display it. Actually, I fabricated the connection between this cabinet card portrait and Paul McCartney's uncle because I needed a story line. However, this cabinet card is remarkable in it's own right. Uncle Albert's mustache is a truly quite impressive and propels his image to the cabinet card gallery's category "Mustaches (Only the Best)". The photographer of this fine image is unidentified.

MAY SIGLER POSES FOR HER PORTRAIT IN SOUTH CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

by bmarshphd

MAY SIGLER_0015

This cabinet card portrait features a pretty young lady named "May Sigler". Her name is inscribed on the reverse of the photograph. She appears to be in her teen years. She is wearing a nice looking hair band, and a lace collar, bib and sleeves. She apparently favors jewelry which is evident by her bracelet and collar pin. The photographer of this image is the Lindner studio which was located in South Chicago, Illinois. Charles W. Lindner is listed in an online compendium of Chicago photographers as operating in that city between 1890 and 1899. The 1900 US census reveals that there was a May Sigler living in the Chicago's Cook County (Lyons). The census was issued no more than a decade after this photograph was taken. At the time of the census, Miss Sigler was twenty eight years old and living with her parents, two sisters and  niece. May was working as a bookkeeper. The May Sigler found in the census is likely the subject of this photograph.

PRETTY ACTRESS NETTIE LYFORD GOES PRODUCE SHOPPING IN NEW YORK CITY (PORTRAIT BY BENJAMIN FALK)

by bmarshphd

lyford_0019

This cabinet card portrait features pretty theater actress Nettie Lyford doing her produce shopping at the Whole Foods grocery store in New York City. She was such a fan of the store that she appeared in their advertising for free. Actually, this photograph is a celebrity portrait that was probably taken by famed celebrity photographer Benjamin Falk. The image was likely produced at Falk's studio in New York City. Miss Lyford is wearing a costume that she probably wore in a stage production. In fact, this very same image appears in Epoch (1892) as part of an article by Morris Bacheller entitled "Favorite Figures of the Stage". The article reports that the young Miss Lyford "has established herself as one of the comic opera favorites of the Metropolis". She had made her debut in Charles Hoyt's farce comedy company in "Rag Baby". While she was appearing in another Hoyt production, "Lunch Counter Girl" she was seen by Francis Wilson (1854-1935)  who hired her to appear in "Oolah" which was a comic opera appearing in New York City in 1887. This cabinet card image was taken during her tenure with Wilson's opera company. To learn more about Francis Wilson and the play "Oolah", search for the image of Marie Jansen which appears in the Cabinet Card Gallery. To view more celebrity photographs by Falk, click on the category "Photographer: Falk".

HATTIE AND EMMA: FASHIONISTAS IN DALLAS, OREGON

This cabinet card portrait presents a fashion mystery. What is the story behind the clothing that these two women are wearing? The previous owner of this photograph called the women "trendy" and stated that they were wearing "Victorian Bohemian" style dresses. I'm wondering if the women are wearing leather dresses. These women are certainly making a fashion statement. The women appear to be wearing slenderizing corsets. One is wearing a choker while the other is wearing a necklace. The woman on the left is holding what appears to be a sheet of paper. It is not clear why she would be posed holding a sheet of paper. The reverse of the cabinet card paper has an inscription which identifies these two women as "Hattie Williams Rhodes" and "Emma Black". Miss Rhodes is standing on the left of the image while Miss Black stands the right. The photographer of this portrait is R. B. Collins and he operated a photography studio in Dallas, Oregon.

PORTRAIT OF A FASHIONABLE WOMAN IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA

A young woman in San Francisco, California poses for her portrait at the Rieman and Tuttle photographic studio. The studio was also known as the Yosemite Art Gallery. The subject of this photograph was a fashionable woman as apparent by her attire and hair style. Note the cameo that she is wearing at her collar. Her name is written on the reverse of the photograph but I found it indecipherable. This photograph is in very good condition. George B. Rieman and William Nutting Tuttle became partners in 1879. Some of their photographs as well as others by Rieman when he was a sole proprietor can be seen by clicking on the category "Photographer: Rieman".

GLOVES

This cabinet card features a very pretty sexy young woman wearing a beautiful formal dress. She is clearly wearing a corset as evidenced by her lovely figure. What makes this portrait noteworthy is her long dark gloves. They are so long that they reach her upper arms. This beautiful portrait was taken by Edmund Risse who operated a studio in Berlin, Germany. Risse was an talented early European photographer. A letter about technical photography issues and signed by Risse appears in The British Journal of Photography (1883).
