PORTRAIT OF A PRETTY WOMAN WEARING A BLACK AND WHITE FEATHERED HAT (FORT WAYNE, INDIANA)

ostrich

A pretty woman poses for her portrait at the New Hamilton Art Gallery in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She looks quite fashionable in her dark dress and wonderful hat. The feathers on the hat are neatly divided into halves of black and white. She is wearing a necklace and is leaning on a high backed chair. She looks very pensive. Advertising on the reverse of the photograph reveals that the studio was located on the corner of Calhoun and Columbia Streets. In addition, the advertising lists the cost of cabinet cards as being 2 dollars per dozen. As an added marketing technique, the studio will do a free 25 dollar oil portrait for one of every thirty customers. Apparently the photographer who operated this studio was a creative marketer as well as a creative photographer.

PORTRAIT OF AN ARMY TAILOR AND HIS SEWING MACHINE IN SERBIA (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

by bmarshphd

tailor

This vintage real photo postcard features a terrific portrait of an army tailor sitting at his sewing machine. The soldier is in uniform while he works on a pair of uniform pants. This photograph was taken in 1931, a period between World War I and World War II. The postcard is addressed to someone in Novi Sad, Serbia. Novi Sad is a city in Serbia on the banks of the Danube River. I am guessing that the soldier in this photograph was a member of the Serbian army. During 1931, Serbia was actually part of Yugoslavia.

This item is a cartes de visite (cdv) featuring a cute long haired little girl sitting on a chair and posing at the Erna studio in Berlin, Germany.

HERITO: A PORTRAIT OF MLLE HERO (THEATER ACTRESS)

by bmarshphd

herito

This vintage real photo postcard features French glamour star Herito (Mlle Hero). She was a celebrated actress and dancer of her era. Although she was a popular subject of photo postcards, this particular postcard is not very common. The postcard was published by Rotophot Berlin (RPH). Rotophot made it's debut in Berlin, Germany around the turn of the century (1900). The company had other European offices including London and Budapest. They published many different postcard topics including stage stars. Many of their early postcards were tinted. Eventually Rotophot morphed into "Ross Verlag" a postcard company that collectors know for the many postcards they produced featuring actors and actresses.

AN ADORABLY DRESSED PRETTY WOMAN AND HER BICYCLE

by bmarshphd

matthews

This cabinet card photograph features an adorably dressed young woman standing beside her bicycle. She looks so pretty in her riding outfit. Note her hat, bow tie, gloves, high boots and patterned dress. This is certainly a terrific image of a bicycle rider and her bike. There is a badge on the front of the bike (under the handlebars) that likely identifies the manufacturer of the bike. I believe that someone knowledgeable about bicycle companies existing during the cabinet card era could determine the name of the company that built this bike. There also seems to be some artwork on the bar underneath the bike's seat. This photograph was taken by a photographer named Matthews but the location of the studio is unknown.

A MAN RIDING A RACING BIKE: NEED FOR SPEED: This vintage real photo postcard features a bicycle racer sitting on his bike. I believe he has goggles strapped around his head. The lens's are visible at the front of his cap. Note the photographers embossed stamp on the bottom of the right hand side of the image. This photograph was taken by Antoine Provost who worked as a photographer in Toulouse, France. At one point his studio was located at Rue de la Pomme. The photographer did an excellent job of posing the rider. The image captures the feel of speed and motion. The postcard was published by "K Ltd" sometime between 1918 and 1936

PORTRAIT OF ACTRESS NORA KERIN APPEARING IN "THE PRINCE AND THE BEGGAR MAID" (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

by bmarshphd

kerin 10

This vintage real photo postcard features actress Miss Nora Kerin (1883-1970) as she appeared in the theatrical production of "The Prince and the Beggar Maid". The actress is absolutely beautiful as is her costume. The play opened at the Lyceum in June of  1908 and ran for 82 performances. Miss Kerin played Princess Monica. The actress was born in London and her family was chock full of actresses including sister, Eileen Kerin and cousing Julia Neilson, Lily Hanbury, and Hilda Hanbury. Photographs of Miss Neilson and Mis Lily Hanbury can be found elsewhere in the Cabinet Card Gallery. Nora Kerin made her stage debut in 1899. In conducting my preliminary research about Nora Kerin, I was struck by the number of negative reviews of her acting that I encountered. One review concerned her performance as Juliet in "Romeo and Juliet". The production was at the Lyceum Theater in 1908 and the review appeared in London's "Daily Mail".  The reviewer wrote "'Oh, Juliet. Juliet, wherefore art thou Juliet?' This is, of course, an inversion and a parody; but, seriously, the Juliet of Miss Nora Kerin cannot be taken so. She declaims in the conventional old-fashioned style. She somehow destroys - on the stage - her own personality, and instead of looking the pink of charm and youth (as she is when "taking a call") she manages to conceal both. Many of her lines were badly spoken, falsely intonated and punctuated. She had moments ... melodramatic outbursts ... but she is not the personality ... she has not the witching simplicity of the real Juliet". Clearly, Miss Kerin was not a luminary actress of her time. However, she was quite pretty and fifteen portraits of her can be seen in the National Portrait Gallery. The photographer of this postcard image was Rita Martin, a celebrated female photographer. She is considered one of the best British photographers of her time.Her studio was in an exclusive neighborhood at  at 74 Baker Street, Marylebone. She was born Margareta Weir Martin in Ireland.  Margareta "Rita" Martin started her career in photography in 1897 by assisting her elder sister Lallie Charles in running her studio. In 1906 Rita opened her own studio. She had a style of photographing subjects in pale colors against a pure white background and she tended to avoid photographing men and older boys.  Rita had a specialty in photographing actresses including Lily Elsie and Lily Brayton. She was also well known for her child studies which often involved children of well known actresses. Lily's sister, Lallie Charles was more known as an excellent society photographer. Many of Rita Martin's photographs can be found in the National Portrait Gallery. A photograph of Rita Martin, by Rita Martin can be seen below. This vintage real photo postcard was produced by the Rotary Photo Company and was part of a series (no. 1796 Z).

PORTRAIT OF A BLIND WOMAN WEARING A FUR COAT (CABINET CARD)

by bmarshphd

putnam

According to the inscription on the reverse of this cabinet card, the subject of this photograph is named Gertrude N. Putnam. The inscriber also mentions that Ms Putnam is a cousin of Lucy S Mckay. This image is novel for a number of reasons. First, note that Gertrude is wearing a pair of dark glasses. Is it safe to assume that she is blind? Second, Gertrude is wearing a fur coat. Remember this is before PETA days so she can wear the coat with little or no guilt. The final unusual feature of this photograph is it's somewhat unusual sized (6 1/2" x 2 3/4"). Unfortunately, little can be learned about Gertrude Putnam because the name and location of the photographer who took this photograph is unknown and there is no shortage of Gertrude N. Putnams' during the cabinet card era.

PORTRAIT OF ACTRESS REGINA BADET: "THE WOMAN AND THE PUPPET" (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

by bmarshphd

badet

This vintage real photo postcard features French actress and dancer, Anne Regina Badet (1876-1949). She was a major star of the Opera-Comique in Paris. She made her debut at the Grand Theatre de Bordeaux where she became a principal dancer  She received much acclaim for her portrayal of Conchita Perez in "The Woman and the Puppet (1910)". This postcard portrait shows her in this role. Her stage acting led her to a brief film career (eleven movies between 1908 and 1922). The Los Angeles Herald (1906) described Badet as the "new Paris pet" and that her dances in the Opera "Aphrodite" had "caused a furor among theater goers. A critic wrote that he went to see the performance because the opera was a "masterpiece" and because he wanted to see the star soprano, Mary Garden, interpretation of her role. Instead, he reports he was most drawn to the performance by Regina Badet.  Miss Badet  retired from stage and screen in the early 1920's.The photographer of this image is listed on the postcard as "Bert". I believe that this is the same photographer who partnered with celebrated photographer Paul Boyer who is known for his celebrity and theater images. This postcard was published by F. C. & C..

PORTRAIT OF TWO SMILING WORLD WAR I SOLDIERS (REAL PHOTO POSTCARD 1904-1908)

by bmarshphd

nunlike

Two World War I era soldiers flash terrific smiles as they pose for their portrait. It is difficult to decipher the name of the studio from the embossed stamp on the image. The name appears to be the "Nunlike Studio" but I am not too confident that I am correct. The men in this image are dressed in uniform with long coats and military hats. The "Cyko" stamp box on this postcard indicates that it was published between 1904 and 1908. This is a very early example of a Cyko postcard. The company published postcards from 1904 through part of the 1920's.
