This vintage real photo postcard falls under the category of  "incredibly cute". The photograph shows an adorable curly and golden haired little girl giving her porcelain doll a bath in a wooden barrel tub. Two additional dolls are seated in a chair beside her awaiting their turn in the tub. Behind the little girl is a clothes line from which the doll's clothes are hanging to dry. Scattered around are some unused clothes line pins and under the small table holding the tub, one can find the doll's shoes. The scene is terrifically posed. The postcard is of French origin and published by Fauvette (#1302). The postcard is postmarked in 1913.

The two cute and gorgeously dressed girls featured in this vintage real photo postcard are presumably sisters. I am not sure how to best describe their dresses and hats so I will just label their attire as "unusual and interesting". Hopefully, someone informed about fashion history, will leave a comment with further explanation. This photo postcard was produced in Spain.

This cabinet card portrait features a cute little girl and her large doll. The child is well dressed and doesn't seem to be particularly pleased to be posing for this photograph. Apparently she did not have the inclination to brush the doll's hair to make her more presentable for the date with the photographer. The photograph has scalloped edges. The child and the name of the photography studio are unidentified. The previous owner of this cabinet card asserted that the doll is of German origin but I have no confirmation.

This Carte de Visite features an adorable child displaying a skeptical but very inquisitive expression. The toddler is sitting on a chair and wearing a short gown with strings across his/her shoulders. The child's attire would be unacceptable today due to safety concerns. The photograph was taken by Jean Emile Dessendier of Roanne, a city in central France. The cdv was produced in 1889 or later as evidenced by the printing on the bottom border of the photograph which states that Dessendier won a photography medal at the 1889 Exposition at the University of Paris.

FRENCH AVIATION PIONEER ROGER SOMNER PILOTS HIS BIPLANE (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

by bmarshphd
sumner
This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of French aviator Roger Somner (1877-1965) sitting in the pilot seat  of his 1910 biplane. Somner was an aviation pioneer. The Washington Herald (1909) reported that he broke a world record in a Farman Biplane by flying one hour and fifty minutes at the height of 80 feet. This was a record due to the length of time logged in the air. The Oregon News (1909) described an international aviation contest involving at least five nations competing for about 401,000 dollars worth of prizes. Somner was representing France while the American competitor was Glenn Curtiss (another celebrated aviation pioneer). The Lewiston Evening Journal (1910) reported that Somner ad established a new world record by piloting a plane with three passengers for a total of five minutes. Somner was clearly a brave man. This vintage postcard has a postmark from the French city of Bordeaux in 1951.

PORTRAIT OF TWO YOUNG GIRLS AND A DOLL (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of two young girls and a doll. One of the girls is sitting in a wicker chair with the doll on her lap but the second girl has her hand on the doll as if she is saying "this doll is mine too". The photograph of the girls seems to have been taken outside or else the photographer has a great backdrop and is very good at setting a scene. The girl's names are written on the reverse of the postcard. "Dorothy and Margirie Warfield" are probably sisters. A quick genealogical search discovered that the 1910 US census lists sisters named Dorothy (age 3) and Marjory (infant) Wharfield (also spelled Warfield). The sisters and the rest of their family lived in Portland, Oregon. The girl's parents were Arthur (age 29) and Gertrude (age 28). Arthur worked as a merchant (furniture store). It is very possible that the girls in the census are the same as the girls in the photograph. This postcard has a CYKO stamp box which indicates that it was produced sometime between 1904 and the 1920's.

sister and brother
This cabinet card feature a brother and sister, or possibly a husband and wife,  posing for their photograph at the Wallace Barnes Photo Company in Snohomish, Washington. They appear to be in their late teenage years. The two are well dressed and the brother/husband is holding a book or magazine on his lap. The sister/wife is wearing a collar pin and a hair ornament. The reverse of the photograph has an inscription identifying the siblings as Clara and Ed Owens. Preliminary research found no information concerning the Wallace Barnes Photo Company. A Wallace Barnes studio was unearthed, but it was located in Mobile, Alabama. The town of Snohomish was founded around 1858. It was originally known as Cadyville, and changed its name to Snohomish City in 1871. The name Snohomish comes from the name of the dominant local Native American tribe.

CAMILLE D'ARVILLE: PRETTY STAGE ACTRESS WITH STRONG OPINIONS ABOUT MARRIAGE AND CAREER

by bmarshphd
darvilleThis cabinet card portrait features pretty stage star Camille D'Arville (1863-1932). The photograph was published by Newsboy and was number 38 of a series of images used as tobacco premiums. The  actress is dressed like a gypsy in this photograph. She is holding a tambourine. It is interesting to note the mug in the bottom right hand corner of this image. One wonders the purpose of it's inclusion in the photograph. It is also evident that to make this image a bit more risque, Miss D'Arville's legs are partially exposed in the photograph. The Illustrated American (1892) wrote that she "is not only a delightful singer but she is also a charming woman". Miss D'Arville was born in Holland in 1863 of well to do parents. When she was young she was known in her community as "the humming bird of Holland" because of her penchant for singing and her pretty voice. At age eleven she became active in amateur theater. At age fifteen she became devoted to concert singing and entered the Academy of Music in Amsterdam. Her professional career began at age twenty-two when she became a light opera actress in London. She premeired in "Cymbia" at the Strand Theater. She performed in London for six years. In 1888, J. C. Duff organized a strong opera company and engaged her to appear in "The Queens Mate" on Broadway in New York City. She shared the stage with Miss Lillian Russell. Reviewers of the play reported that Miss D'Arville captured the audience. As her career developed, she became "one of the foremost artists on the comic operatic stage". In an interesting interview that appeared in the San Francisco Call (1900), D'Arville spoke about the issue of balancing career and marriage. She was preparing to marry Capitalist E. W. Crellin and had declared that she was going to retire from the footlights. The newspaper scoffed at the notion of her retiring because so many actresses before her had made the same declaration upon their marriage, yet after turning their backs on the stage, they do a "right about face" again. The paper opined that "they flit back before the honeymoon is over". Miss D'Arville asserted that she wouldn't miss her salary (reported to be "something like" a thousand dollars a week). She stated that she would miss the audience "hanging on" to every note she sang. She had a theory about mixing marriage and career. She asserted that when an artist, milliner or stenographer renounces her vocation for "the highest profession-domestic life- the world nods its approval". However, she contends that female professionals, such as actresses, lawyers, doctors, and journalists, do not receive social approval when leaving their careers for marriage. She declares that in her opinion, attempting to combine stage and home life is about as easy as mixing oil and water. As a result, she believes that "any woman who pursues a profession after her marriage makes a miserable failure of it". Balancing work and home is seen as so stressful that professional women have to quit at least one, and they usually choose to quit matrimony. She concludes that "marriage does not handicap a woman in her profession, but a profession seriously interferes with married life." The issue concerning women's ability to balance career and marriage remains part of the public debate today. Perhaps we should focus more on men's ability to balance work and family life. It clearly is not just a problem for women. It is really incredible how researching a photograph can take one in so many different directions. Researching a vintage photograph is akin to going on a journey to a mystery destination.
