PORTRAIT OF A PROBABLE ACTRESS NAMED ROBEL

by bmarshphd

ROBEL_0008

The pretty subject of this cabinet card was photographed by celebrity photographer Napoleon Sarony at his New York City Studio. The woman is probably an actress. Penciled on the reverse of the photograph is the name "Robel". Preliminary research proved to be unsuccessful in identifying an actress with that name.

MEET JETTIE OFFERLEE: A WIDE EYED YOUNG GIRL AND HER CUTE DOG IN WARREN, PENNSYLVANIA

by bmarshphd

GIRL AND DOG_0001

The pretty wide eyed young girl sitting in the wicker chair snuggling with her cute dog is named Jettie Offerle. Her name is listed on the reverse of the photograph. The child appears to be happy as she poses for the image. She has long hair and is wearing a plaid dress. Her dog appears to be a cocker spaniel or a poodle. The photograph was taken at the Savage studio in Warren, Pennsylvania. G. W. Savage was the photographer of this vintage photograph. His son, Charles A. Savage (1912-1972) was a noted photographer and taught photography at a college that became the Rochester Institute of Technology. Research disclosed that this child's actual name was Jetta Offerlee. The 1900 US census reveals that Jetta lived with her mother, Lottie V, Offerlee and her sister and brother-in-law. The family lived in Warren. Lottie was born in Sweden and at the time of the census worked as a dressmaker.  The 1910 census found Jetta, age 21, still living in Warren but living as a boarder and working as a stenographer for an insurance company. Further research disclosed that Jetta married a man named Raymond S. Thorpe. She died at age 75 (1963) in Mount Lebanon, Pennsylvania.

A FATHER AND HIS YOUNG SON: FIRST AND SECOND VIOLIN IN NORTH ADAMS, MASSACHUSETTS

by bmarshphd

music family

This cabinet card features a father and son posing for their portrait at a photography studio in North Adams, Massachusetts. Both father and son are standing by their violins. Sheet music rests on a music stand. Hopefully the boy has memorized his part because there is no way he is going to be able to read the music due to it being elevated so far above his head. Dad seems to be rather self absorbed as he poses for the camera. It is as if he is oblivious to the presence of his son. It is interesting that the photographer chose to photograph the musical pair in a faux outdoor setting. Placing the subjects in a faux parlor or music room seems more appropriate. Nevertheless, this is a terrific photograph. I have been unable to decipher the photographers name and would appreciate any assistance in the effort from any cabinet card gallery visitor. Visitors have played an important role in providing research and background information throughout the gallery's history and their efforts are greatly appreciated.

EYES WIDE OPEN: BABY POSES IN ROCKING CHAIR IN EAST CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS

by bmarshphd

BABY

This vintage photograph features a baby posing in a rocking chair at the Cambridge Studio in East Cambridge, Massachusetts. The baby is wearing a gown and has a necklace around her neck. Her expression looks like she is trying to make sense out of the situation as she poses in front of the photographer. This portrait is unusual in that the photographer chose to produce an excessively close-up portrait.

ITALIAN CABINET CARD FEATURING A MOTHER AND HER YOUNG DAUGHTER

by bmarshphd

ITALIAN CAB_0001

This cabinet card portrait is an immigrant to the Cabinet Card Gallery from somewhere in Italy. The image features a young mother with her arm affectionately around the shoulders of her adorable daughter. Mom is holding a fan and the daughter is holding a small purse. Both the mother and daughter share intense expressions though the daughter is also displaying a wide-eyed questioning look at the photographer. Neither the subjects in this image or the photographer are identified on this well posed cabinet card.
