INTRIGUING IMAGE OF SIMPLY DRESSED BLACK WOMAN SITTING ON STEPS WITH TWO WHITE MEN (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

steps

This vintage real photo postcard is one of the most intriguing postcards that I have come across. What is the story behind this photograph? The image captures a simply dressed black woman flanked by two white men dressed in jacket and tie. Who are these men in relation to this woman? Why do the subjects of this photograph want their meeting photographed? One can imagine some interesting scenarios. Unfortunately the circumstances related to this image are lost to history. This AZO postcard was published between 1904 and 1918.

THE GLORY OF WAR (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO PROPAGANDA POSTCARD)

by bmarshphd

war

This vintage real photo postcard extols the glory of war. We see an image of a cute little boy playing with his toy soldiers. Above him, we see an image of a smiling World War I soldier looking down on the young lad. Perhaps this photograph can be interpreted as a soldier at war fondly remembering his days playing with toy soldiers. A second interpretation may be that a little boy is fantasizing fighting in a "real war" while he is playing with his militaristic toys. It is clear that this photo postcard was aimed to stimulate feelings of patriotism during a time of war. Many generations of young boys have had a skewed view of war. Fighting wars has been viewed as glorious and exciting. One teenager once told me that he didn't want to live his life without having the experience of going to war. When these young boys (and in present times....girls) grow up and become participants in warfare, they realize that the fantasy is nothing like the reality. This postcard is an example of propaganda meant to garner support for France, it's policies, and it's troops. The postcard was published in France and is part of a series (0 549).

YOUNG MAN IN A STUDIO ROWBOAT IN CARTHAGE, MISSOURI (CARTE DE VISITE)

by bmarshphd

rowboat

A young man dressed in winter clothing gently rows his boat down a river. In actuality, the boat and the river were props inside the studio of E. E. Roessler in Carthage, Missouri. Carthage was the site of two battles during the American civil war and in a third incident,  most of the city was burned down. The photographer, Edward E. Roessler was born in 1850 and married Annie Befferin in 1896. He robbed the cradle as Annie, an accomplished pianist, was 21 years younger than her husband. The town of Carthage was the site of two battles during America's civil war. During the war, in a seperate incident, it was nearly completely burned down. This carte de visite photograph was likely taken not too many years after the war. Roessler also worked as a photographer in Shelbyville, Illinois as well as San Bernadino, California. He died in 1935 in Alameda, California.

HAUNTED YOUNG WOMAN IN BARMEN, GERMANY (CARTE DE VISITE)

haunted

A young woman poses for her portrait at the Samson & Company Studio in Barmen, Germany. She is wearing a dark dress with a dark polka dot top. The woman looks quite serious. In fact, her expression, in particular her eyes, projects a haunted appearance. One wonders what might be troubling this young lady. Barmen is a former industrial city located in the Bergisches Land region. The city merged with four other towns in 1929 to form the city of Wuppertal. It is interesting to note that the cabinet card gallery has two other images by a gallery named Samson & Company. Both of these photographs are German but they are not located in Barmen. The other two photo studios were located in Duisburg and Karlsruhe respectively. You may view all three images by searching the category "Photographer: Samson & Company". To complicate matters further, the book "The Lives of Erich Fromm: Love's Prophet" reports that Fromm's mother took him regularly to Samson & Company for portraits. The author notes that the studio was located in Frankfurt and catered to Jewish families. Erich Fromm grew up to be a celebrated pioneer psychologist.

MR COLTON PAYNE LEE AND HIS LARGE DOG SIT SIDE BY SIDE FOR THEIR PORTRAIT

by bmarshphd

SETTER

Mr Colton Paine Lee sits on a chair beside his large curly haired dog. Both the pooch and his/her master are looking at the camera. Mr. Lee is grinning while his dog is staring quite intently. The name of the photographer or the location of the studio are not identified. Preliminary research found no information concerning Mr. Lee. However, it is possible that the gentleman's name may actually be "Colton Paine",  while the dog may be named "Lee". Any assistance from the great genealogical detectives that visit the cabinet card gallery would be very appreciated.

TWO TEENAGE GYPSY GIRLS PREPARE FOR CARNIVAL IN CHALON SUR SAONE, FRANCE (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

gypsies

It appears that the two young women seen in this portrait are dressed and ready for the French Carnival. The festival occurs after the "Feast of Fools" and has been a tradition since the sixteenth century or earlier. The girls in the photograph of this vintage real photo postcard are dressed as gypsies and holding stereotypical tambourines. The girls are about in their teenage years. They were photographed by Monsieur Henry of Chalon-Sur-Saone, France. The city is located in the south of the Burgundy region of that nation. I wonder what the fascination is with gypsies? The obsession is apparent when one looks at postcards from around the turn of the century (1800's to the 1900's). An observer of these postcards will see gypsies here, there, and everywhere. Perhaps visitors to the cabinet card gallery would like to hypothesize about this cultural phenomenon. I would appreciate your input. Now, back to this postcard. The previous owner of this postcard translated the message as "Remember with affection your little girlfriend. A thousand kisses, Germaine". My guess is that the shorter woman in this image is Mlle Germaine.

FRENCH MILITARY MAN FROM THE 18TH BATTALION DE CHASSEURS (CARTE DE VISITE)

colonel

This carte de visite portrait features a French foot soldier from the 18th batallion de chasseurs. Chasseur is the French word for hunter. The term was used by the French and Belgian Army to denote light infantry or light cavalry. These troops were trained and utilized for rapid action.  The soldier in this image is holding a pair of white gloves. His facial expression exudes everything military. The photograph was taken by the Gabriel Studio.
