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.

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

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.
