PORTRAIT OF MOTHER AND YOUNG DAUGHTER AND PHOTO ALBUM IN COLUMBIANA, OHIO

by bmarshphd
columbiana
A mother and young daughter pose for their portait at the the J. M. Webb studio in Columbiana, Ohio. The daughter is cute and she has one hand affectionately placed on her mother's shoulder and her other hand on a thick photographic album. Note the girl's long frizzy hair. The photographer of this image is John M. Webb (1850-1942). He was born in Greenford, Ohio. He took over his father's (George G. Webb) photography business and operated it from 1884 to at least 1900.

A YOUNG GIRL AND HER PUG POSE IN ALTOONA, PENNSYLVANIA

by bmarshphd
A young girl sits on a chair, hands folded on her lap, and dreamily looks at the camera. Sitting alongside her is her trusty  pug. Actually, the dog may not be that trusty because the dog is wearing a collar and chain insuring that he stays in range of the camera. The young girl is holding the dog's leash. This photograph was taken at the Kottmann studio in Altoona, Pennsylvania. Edward Kottmann was a German born photographer who received his training at galleries in Philadelphia. He began working as a photographer in Altoona in about 1883. An advertisement announcing the sale of his gallery appears in Sap Shots (1908).

THE ROTHSCHILD PARK TROLLEY AND TWO CONDUCTORS IN WAUSAU, WISCONSIN

by bmarshphd

trolley one
This wonderful vintage photograph gives us a view of an important mode of transportation in America's past. The Rothschild Park trolley was operated by the Wausaw Electric Railway. This photograph features a trolley car and two uniformed conductors. In 1906 the Wausau Street Railway Company was organized to bring electric transportation to Wausau. Sometime around 1915 the railway became the Wisconsin Valley Merrill Railway and Lighting Company. Note the sign stating "Rothschild Park" on the front of the trolley car. The story of Rothschild Park is quite interesting. The park was located, unsurprisingly, in Rothschild, Wisconsin which was about six miles from Wausau. Rothschild Park was owned by the Wausau Electric Railway and must have been quite a fun place to visit. The park offered 40 acres of water, islands and land. Attractions included a roller coaster, dance floor, catering hall, and more. In 1912 it cost ten cents to get to the park from Wausau. The photographer of this terrific image is unknown.

TWO ADORABLE YOUNG SIBLINGS POSE FOR THEIR PORTRAIT IN ONEIDA, NEW YORK

by bmarshphd

This cabinet card features a little girl and her younger sibling. Big sister seems to be assuming a protective posture in relation to her sibling. Both children share pleasant smiles. Big sister is adorable. She is wearing a pretty dress and her hair is in braids. The younger child is wearing a lace bib and an outfit that has military braided stripes and brass buttons. The photographer of this image is W. J. (possibly W. T.) Richardson who operated his studio in Oneida, New York.

PORTRAIT OF CARDINAL HENRY EDWARD MANNING IN LONDON, ENGLAND

by bmarshphd

This cabinet card features a portrait of Cardinal Henry Edward Manning (1808-1892). He was the English Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster and a Cardinal. His father was a West India merchant and served as a governor of the Bank of England and also served in the Parliament for thirty years. Manning was highly educated and at one time considered a career in politics. However, he pursued a religious profession with the Anglican Church. In 1851 he left the Anglican Church to join the Catholic Church. He became influential is charting the course of the modern Catholic church. He had an excellent relationship with Pope Pius IX. Cardinal Manning is interred at the Westminster Cathedral. Cardinal Manning was photographed for this portrait by the Elliott & Fry studio in London, England. The studio was well known for photographing Royalty, Celebrities, and other important people of the time. To view more photographs from this studio and to learn more about the photographers, click on the category "Photographer: Elliott & Fry".

FAMOUS NORWEGIAN-AMERICAN SCULPTOR: JAKOB FJELDE IN MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA (CABINET CARD PORTRAIT)

by bmarshphd

norway
This cabinet card portrait features famous Norwegian-American sculptor Jakob Fjelde (1855-1896). Fjelde is wearing an interesting overcoat with embroidery on it's shoulders. Perhaps this is a coat that he wore while creating his sculpture. He has a attractive bushy mustache and is holding a half smoked cigar. Fjelde was born in Alesund, Norway and arrived in the United States in 1887. He settled in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was the father of sculptor Paul Fjelde and brother of artist Pauline Fjelde. Jakob was a prolific portraitist and created a number of public monuments. One of his most well known monuments was one dedicated to the 1st Minnesota Infantry (1897) that is located at the Gettysburg battlefield. Some of his statues in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area include "Hiawatha carrying Minnehaha", "Minerva", and "Ole Bull". In 1885 he sculpted Henrik Ibsen from life and created a number of public statues and busts from the experience. The photographer of this image is Lee Boos who operated a studio in Minneapolis.

PORTRAIT OF MISS LIZZIE COOPERIDER (UPPER SANDUSKY, OHIO)

by bmarshphd
The pretty woman with the large eyes in this portrait is identified on the reverse of the photograph as Miss Lizzie Cooperider. She is wearing a "layered look". Note her unusual collar pin. The photograph was produced by McCahon's Art Gallery in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. John McCahon was born in Ireland sometime around 1828. He was a photographer in central Ohio for more than 3 decades. He operated the Cottage Photograph Gallery in Roscoe and galleries in Utica (1870) and Westerville (1878). He opened a studio in Upper Sandusky in 1880 and the last stop of his journey as a photographer was in Newark (late 1880's). In 1893 McCahon suffered a stroke and his wife Isabella and his daughters Bertha and W. Blanche assisted in continuing the operation of the studio. John McCahon died in 1896. His daughter W. Blanche (1864-1944) continued working as a photographer. After gaining valuable experience managing her fathers studio during his illness, she continued running the gallery until 1918. She then worked in a Mansfield, Ohio studio until she opened her own studio in Westerville as some time during the 1920's and continued its operation until 1938.

CUTE LITTLE GIRL WAITS FOR HER SHIP TO COME IN AT STUDIO IN WOLGAST, GERMANY

by bmarshphd
wolgast
This cabinet card portrait features a little girl, dressed in traditional costume, waiting at a faux dock for a ship to arrive. It will be a long wait because she is standing inside the studio of Hermann Sontag (Art Publisher) which had two location inside of Germany. He had galleries in the towns of Wolgast and Zinnowitz. I understand why the words "Kunst-Verlag"  (Art Publishing) is beside Mr. Sontag's name. The backdrop in this portrait is masterful as is Sontag's use of props (trunks and fishing nets). The child in this portrait is adorable. Note her interesting shoes and that she is holding a bouquet of flowers.

A LITTLE BOY AND A BIG SWING IN CORSICANA, TEXAS

by bmarshphd
swinger
This cabinet card portrait captures a well-dressed handsome little boy holding a large swing in a studio portrait by the Harper studio in Corsicana, Texas. The lad is unsuccessfully holding back a smile as he looks at the photographer. He apparently was enjoying posing for the cameraman. Using swings as props in cabinet card images is not extremely rare but this is one of the finer "swing images" that I've seen. To view other cabinet card photographs that employ swings, click on the cabinet card gallery category "Swings". According to advertising on the front of this cabinet card, Harper had other branches of his studio located in Texas. Besides Corsicana, he operated in Tyler, Mexia, and Waxahachie. Further research that Harper also operated other studios in Texas (Bryan, Temple, Ennis, and Calvert). Apparently, Mr. Harper was quite an entrepreneur.
