YOUNG GIRL IN TYROLEAN COSTUME WITH MANDOLIN IN BECKENHAM, ENGLAND

This exceptional cabinet card portrait features a young girl wearing a Tyrolean costume and playing a mandolin. She looks absolutely adorable. The photograph comes from photographer F Valery who operated a studio in Beckenham, England. When Frederick Valery went home to his wife and family, he was no longer Frederick Valery. Instead he became James Frederick Lowrie. Apparently, Frederick Valery was Lowrie's "nom de camera". Lowrie was born in London in 1853. He was married to Millie (1855-?) and the couple had two sons and one daughter. Lowrie was a photographer from at least 1901 through 1907. The British Journal of Photography (1906) reported the "sudden death" of Mr. Lowrie. He had two studios, one in Beckenham, and the second one in Bromley. The journal states that Lowrie "dropped dead" while photographing a girl in his Bromley studio. He was 53 years old at the time of his death. His cause of death was heart disease. If this image is typical of his work, Lowrie certainly was a gifted photographer.
