The woman who is the subject of this cabinet card photograph is truly beautiful and fabulously dressed. She is also wearing an array of jewelry including a necklace, ring and bracelet. She clearly is from the "one percent" portion of the population and this photograph certainly makes a fashion statement. Her image is captured skillfully by celebrity photographer Charles DeForest Fredricks who operated the Knickerbocker Family Portrait Gallery. To learn more about Fredricks and to view more of his photographs, click on the category "Photographer: Fredricks". Look at the image below to see the drawing on the reverse of the cabinet card. The drawing depicts the photographer as an artist. He is also shown smoking a pipe. There is a copyright notation from 1881.

FOUR TEENAGE GIRLS EATING GRAPES IN BUTLER, PENNSYLVANIA

BUTLER CRILEY_0013
Grapes? Paper Bags? When did paper bags get invented anyway? Why did the photographer choose to photograph four teenage girls eating grapes? Is there some kind of symbolism in the image or is it meant to just show four girls enjoying a picnic? This cabinet card photograph presents a number of interesting questions and I can only answer one of them. Paper bags were invented in 1852. At least that is when Frances Wolle patented the machine that manufactured paper sacks and founded the Union Paper Bag Company. The reverse of this cabinet card has an inscription stating "Stella Pape, 1888". Stella was actually her nickname. Her given name was Destella L. Pape and she was born in 1872. She was about sixteen years of age at the time of this photograph. In the 1900 US census she was living with her mother (Mary) and older brother (Nielson) in Butler, Pennsylvania She later married George Reiber who was a man twenty-one years her senior. The couple had a son in 1905 who was named after his father (George). Stella Pape died in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania in 1956. She was buried with her son (see the photograph of her gravestone below). The photographers of this image are Criley & Wagner. To view more of their images, click on the category "Photographer: Criley & Wagner".

PORTRAIT OF A LOVELY COUPLE IN LONDON (ONTARIO), CANADA

ontario

This cabinet card portrait features a well dressed and handsome couple posing at Edy Brothers studio in London (Ontario), Canada. The studio was located at 214 Dundas Street. The gentleman is holding some papers on his lap. The attractive young woman appears to appreciate jewelry. She is wearing a necklace and a ring. Edy Brothers Studio was a family run business for several decades between the 1860's and teh early 1920's in Brantford and London, Ontario. James Newbury Edy (1843-1890) and William Daniel Edy (1832-1911) were the original partners that started the business. William's son Leslie Eli Edy (1864-1919) ran the business in the early 1900's. The next proprietor was Franklin William Edy who operated the studio until it's closure in 1922.

EMOTIONAL PORTRAIT OF A POOR SHARE CROPPER FAMILY IN ALABAMA

by bmarshphd
share cropper

Once again I could not resist putting a non cabinet card photograph in the Cabinet Card Gallery. I will use the same excuse I always use. This photograph is truly special and I want to share it with the gallery's visitors and followers. This vintage real photo postcard captures a young family sitting in a field. Capture is definitely the right word. The photographer did an exceptional job of capturing the emotional state of the family members. The mother and father in this image are both quite attractive despite being dressed in their work clothing. Many photographic subjects of this era dressed in their finest clothing when being photographed. There is an implication that this family is a poor family. The words "tenant farmer"and "share cropper" come to mind. Both husband and wife look intensely worried. The wife also looks quite determined. Are they worried about a failed crop? Are they worried about the bank foreclosing on their farm? The older child in this photograph is adorable despite the fact that she is eyeing the photographer with a great deal of suspicion. This postcard was produced by CYKO sometime between 1904 and the 1920's. The postcard is in good condition (see scan). The postcard was found in Bessemer, Alabama which is about 18 miles southwest of Birmingham. If the photograph was taken in the area of Bessemer, it is interesting to note that truck farming was one of the occupations associated with that town around the time that this postcard portrait was taken.

ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL LOOKS UP AT HUGE ST. BERNARD IN AWE (STEREO CARD)

by bmarshphd

st bernard

This stereo card is offers an adorable photograph of a little girl looking up in awe at a large St. Bernard. The dog looks friendly enough and the child does not seem intimidated. In fact the caption on the card indicates that the girl asks "Aren't you big enough to talk? I am". The little girl sits on a Persian rug holding a doll in her lap. There is also a toy block and another doll in the foreground of the photograph. Since this is the Cabinet Card Gallery and not the Stereo Card Gallery, a few words about Stereo cards may be in order. Stereo cards have a pair of photographs which give a three dimensional view when looked at through a Stereo Card viewer. This form of photography was in it's prime between 1870 and 1920. A popular producer of these cards was Underwood & Underwood Publishers. Two brothers, Elmer Underwood (1859-1947) and Bert Elias Underwood (1862-1943), formed the company in Ottawa, Kansas in 1881. They later moved to Baltimore and later New York City (1891). At one point in time, Underwood & Underwood was the largest publisher of stereoviews in the world (10 milion views a year). This particular view was one of their publications.
