by bmarshphd

taishoThis vintage photograph compensates for its less than stellar condition by featuring a very cute five year-old girl. She looks adorable in her nice outfit as she displays her long hair under a pretty hat. The previous owner of this image stated that it dates to the Taisho period (1912-1926). It was also reported that the young girl in this photograph was five years of age at the time the image was taken. The photographer of this photographic portrait is M. Matsuda of Tokyo, Japan.

PRETTY YOUNG AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN IN BRUNSWICK, MAINE

This vintage photograph features a pretty young African American woman posing for her portrait at the Kuhn studio in Brunswick, Maine. The woman is wearing a couple of pieces of jewelry. She has a collar pin which has a photograph of a young white woman. On wonders if the photo is of someone that the subject knows or if it is just a beautiful model. The woman in this photograph is also wearing what appears to be a pocket watch. The timepiece is hanging from her blouse exposed between the lapels of her jacket. The woman has a nice smile and expressive eyes. An inscription on the reverse of this image indicates that the subject's name is Nora.
