The four young women are well dressed and wearing corsages for their photo shoot at an unnamed photography studio. The postcard was made on AZO postcard paper which dates the image between 1904 and 1918.

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.

A PRETTY FASHIONISTA AND HER BICYCLE (VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH)

lady biker 1
A pretty and well dressed young woman poses for her portrait beside her bicycle at an unidentified photography studio in an unidentified town or city. The young woman is wearing a ruffled blouse with puffed shoulders, a neckerchief, and a hat with a feather. She is also wearing a ring as well as jewelry pinned on her blouse. She is dressed to go riding on her pretty white bicycle. This is in fact the way woman dressed to go bike riding. Interestingly, the reverse of the photograph has a portrait of a little girl glued to it (see image below). It is likely that the little girl in the picture grew up to be the woman with the bicycle. This vintage photograph measures 5" x 7" and is a great representation of cycling history.

This cabinet card portrait features a young wedding couple dressed for their big day. Both the bride and groom are wearing white gloves and corsages. The pair were photographed by the Brua & Clark studio in Taylorville, Illinois. Preliminary research yielded little information about the photographers. It appears that Brua's more complete name is B. F. Brua and at one time he was a photographer in Lyons, Kansas.

A GENTLEMAN WITH A WONDERFUL BEARD AND A WONDERFUL EXPRESSION IN STUTTGART, GERMANY (CDV)

by bmarshphd
=stuttgart
The young man in this carte de visite portrait is displaying a fantastic expression He has a devilish glint in his eyes. This fun loving gentleman is well dressed and sports a terrific beard. The photographer of this cdv was Erwin Hanfstaengl (1838-1905) who operated a photography studio in Stuttgart, Germany. He was married to Marie Schroder Hanfstaengl (1848-1917) who was a noted German operatic soprano and singing teacher. Erwin was a member of the distinguished Stuttgart photography and art publishing family headed by Franz Hanfstaengl. There is an inscription on the reverse of the photo (see image below) which probably identifies the young man. Unfortunately, I am unable to translate the writing and am hopeful a Cabinet Card Gallery visitor will leave a comment that includes the translation.

This vintage photograph captures a young boy doing something rare for his time. The unusual activity is the fact that he is smiling and even more rare is that he is exhibiting a broad smile. The child is cute and nicely dressed. Note his terrific cap and high shoes. The photograph was taken at the Moore studio in Lancaster, Ohio. The photographer was Charles T. Moore (1866-?). He is listed as a photographer in the 1900 and 1910 US census. He lived in Lancaster and was married to Stella Moore. The couple had at least two children, both were girls. The photograph measures about 4 1/4 " x 6 1/2".

DISTINGUISHED AND CHARISMATIC GENTLEMAN WEARING A TOP HAT

The subject of this vintage photographic portrait is quite a character. He is flashing a great smile and even his eyes are smiling. The mustachioed distinguished gentleman is wearing a three piece suit, a bow tie, and a top hat. He is holding a pair of gloves. I am very curious as to what this interesting looking man is smiling at. The reverse of the photograph has an inscription which identifies him as "Brother Jim". The photographer of this portrait has his name embossed at the bottom of the photograph. It is difficult to decipher but appears to be M. Crowe (possibly Crow) of Moundsville, West Virginia. The town derives it's name from the many Adena Indian burial mounds found there. These mounds were constructed more than 2000 years ago. Preliminary research found no  biographical information about the photographer.

FOUR VERY COOL LOOKING YOUNG MEN IN ASHLAND, WISCONSIN

by bmarshphd
jones
This cabinet card portrait features four well dressed hatted young men posing for their portrait at the J. A. Jones studio in Ashland, Wisconsin. The men present themselves with an air of confidence. That is particularly true of the fellow seated on the right of the photograph. All four men are wearing vests and the two men in the front row appear to be wearing identical striped shirts. It is my theory that the men work in the same business and that is what brings them together for this group portrait. The photographer of this image is John A. Jones. He operated a photography studio in Ashland between 1893 and 1916. A man with the same name had a studio in Hurley, Wisconsin between 1919 and 1922, although I am uncertain that they are one and the same person. Apparently, Mr. Jones of Ashland was a bit of an entrepreneur. Motor Age (1909) reported that Jones bought a sixteen passenger truck to establish a sightseeing stage line between Ashland and Odanah, the seat of the big Indiana Reservation of northern Wisconsin.
