PRETTY STAGE ACTRESS NESTA NEILSON

This cabinet card portrait features pretty stage actress Nesta Neilson. Preliminary research yielded little information about Miss Neilson. She is cited a number of times as appearing in theatrical newspaper articles but access to these periodicals could not be gained. Perhaps a cabinet card visitor can fill the rest of us in concerning Miss Neilson's personal and theatrical life. This cabinet card photo was produced by the Natori studio in New York City. Natori photographed a numberof theatrical stars of his era.

PORTRAIT OF MADGE WYLLIE: A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

This vintage photographic portrait features an absolutely beautiful little girl with a charming smile. She has long loose curls and a pretty matching dress and hat. An inscription on the reverse of the photograph identifies the young girl as Madge Wyllie and the date of the photograph as 1902.  It was very difficult to uncover information about Miss Wyllie until I stumbled across a wedding announcement in the Chicago Tribune (9/11/02) pertaining to her sister. It was reported that "Miss Madge Wyllie was flower girl and wore a gown of white point d'espirit over silk" at her sister Edith's wedding. It is interesting to note that Madge was flower girl the same year she sat for this photograph. The article also reported that Madge's father was H. D. Wyllie. Learning her father's name opened genealogical doors wide enough to garner more helpful information. H. D. Wyllie was actually Hubert D. Wyllie who was an English born engineer living in Chicago with his wife and many children (at least seven). One of these children was Margery Rose Wyllie, otherwise known as Madge. Madge was born in 1890 so she was about twelve years old when she posed for this photograph. The 1910 census found her living with her family of origin in Chicago and unemployed. She married Walter Crossett Barber. She died in 1983 and is buried in Naperville Cemetery in Naperville, Illinois. This photograph was taken by the J. Edgar Waters studio in Chicago, Illinois.

A VERY BEAUTIFUL BABY IN ELWOOD, INDIANA (MAY BE A POST MORTEM PHOTOGRAPH

by bmarshphd
babyThis cabinet card features a very beautiful baby wearing a long gown. Her hair is styled beautifully and her eyes are wide open. This sweet baby looks like a doll. She is either wearing flowers on her gown or else someone has placed flowers on her. At first I thought this was a lovely portrait of a baby girl. However, the longer I have owned this image, the more I think that this is a post mortem portrait. The little girl's expression and the size and placement of the flowers has led me to believe that her poor soul had departed before the photographer took this photograph. This photograph really tugs at my emotions. The image was taken by the Rodgers & Manson studio (Gem Gallery) in Elwood, Indiana.

JAMES AND MARY PIGGOTT: PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG COUPLE IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA

by bmarshphd
sf couple
This cabinet card portrait features a lovely young couple posed for their portrait at Cramer's California Gallery in San Francisco. The reverse of the photograph has an inscription with the name "James Piggott and wife". Preliminary research identifies this couple as James K Piggott and his wife Mary A. Piggott. Ironically, the 1940 US census indicates that James Piggott owned a photography studio. The business was managed by his son, Harold B. Piggott. The photographer of this cabinet card was Charles Lake Cramer (1835-1911). In his early career he operated photography studios in the California cities of Santa Barbara (1858), San Andreas (1858), and Suisun City (1860). Cramer ran a humorous ad in 1858 that stated "Good pictures made from hard looking subjects". In 1863, Cramer worked for photographers Bradley & Rulofson (featured prominently in the Cabinet Card Gallery). Cramer ran his own photographic studio in San Francisco between 1863 and 1906. His studio was called the "California Gallery" during the 1870's and 1880's which indicates that this photograph was produced during one of those decades (Most probably the 1880's).

This cabinet card photograph features a very handsome couple posing at the L. Lang Jeune studio in Montelimar, France. The image may be a wedding photo. The gentleman in this photograph strikes a dashing figure in his military dress uniform and boots. His wife appears delicate and pretty. She is bright eyed and displaying a nice smile. Advertising on the reverse of the cabinet card indicates that the studio that created this image was founded in 1869 and had won a medal at an exhibition in 1909,

PORTRAIT OF PRETTY THEATER ACTRESS MARGUERITE FISH IN NEW YORK CITY

by bmarshphd
Pretty theater actress Marguerite Fish is the subject of this portrait cabinet card by Naegeli whose studio was located in New York City. Miss Fish began her stage career with her mother. They performed as a song and dance team known as Jenny Benson and Baby Benson. Later, she became known as Marguerite Fish and was a comic opera and musical actress. She has a number of mentions in the New York Times for her stage performances. These citations include appearances in "Our Wedding Day" (1887) and "The Crystal Slipper" (1888). Albert Naegeli, the photographer of this image, was a well known New York City photographer during the cabinet card era.
