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.

A farmer stands in his field with his wife and two young children. They seem to be "salt of the earth" type people and are likely living a hardscrabble life. The farmer is wearing overalls and holding a tool. His horse and plow and the family dog  are also in the photograph. This image is an unused real photo postcard. The identity of this farm family and the location of their farm are unknown.

PORTRAIT OF A WEDDING COUPLE IN TAYLORVILLE, ILLINOIS

taylorsville
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

by bmarshphd

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

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.
