A young woman dressed in a Salvation Army uniform poses for her Carte de Visite portrait at the Central studio in Gefle, Sweden. Note her Salvation Army badge which she is wearing at her collar. She is also wearing quite a serious expression. "Gefle" is a spelling for the town "Gavle" which was used from the 1500's to the early 1900's. The city is the oldest city in the "Norrland". It received it's charter in 1446.

PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG AND PRETTY FASHIONISTA IN NEUDEK, GERMANY (CARTE DE VISITE)

by bmarshphd

neudek

This carte de visite photograph features a beautiful young girl dressed in the best of fashion. Her clothing indicates that she is from a family of means. She is wearing a stunning dress, a wonderful hat, and is carrying a parasol. She is wearing jewelry (bracelet, earrings) and appears in a manner that is very adult-like. This image reminds me of current day practices by little girl beauty pageants. The contestants, like the young girl above, are portrayed as miniature adults. This cdv portrait produced by photographer Franz Kostler who operated a studio in the town of Neudek. Today, Neudek is called Nejdek and is located in the Karlovy Vary Region of the Czech Republic. The name "Neudek" is of German origin and it is my guess that at the time that this photograph was taken, the town was part of Germany.

PORTRAIT OF A HANDSOME HISPANIC OR MEDITERRANEAN YOUNG MAN (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

by bmarshphd

latin-man

This vintage real photo postcard features a handsome ethnic looking young man posing for his portrait at an unidentified private photo studio. Perhaps the man is of Hispanic or Mediterranean origin. The gentleman is well dressed and gives the appearance of being a businessman. His facial expression exudes self assurance. This photo postcard certainly evokes a number of unanswerable questions. The postcard's stamp box indicates that it was printed on Artura card stock sometime between 1908 and 1924. Residue on the reverse of the postcard reveals that it once was a resident of a photo album.

THE GREAT WAR IMPACTS A LOVELY FAMILY IN VIENNA, AUSTRIA

by bmarshphd

vienna-soldier

War is hell to nations, communities, and families. In "A Farewell to Arms" (1929), novelist and World War I veteran Ernest Hemingway wrote "There were many words that you could not stand to hear and finally only the names of places had dignity. Abstract words such as glory, honor, courage, or hallow were obscene." This cabinet card photograph illustrates the impact of war on a family. The two men in uniform are likely the father and oldest son of the family. The men could not look more serious. Perhaps at the time of this photograph their nation was near, or at war. The remainder of the family (mother, two daughters, and a son) look extremely concerned and worried. The welfare of their nation and their family unit was in jeopardy. This terrific photograph speaks loudly and clearly about the horror of war. The photographer of this emotionally charged image is Ant. Knoll who operated a studio in Vienna, Austria.

PORTRAIT OF A LOVELY COUPLE IN MARION, INDIANA

by bmarshphd

marion

This cabinet card photograph features a lovely couple posing for their photograph at the Harnish & Marquart studio in Marion Indiana. The pair are well dressed and likely are financially well-to-do. The gentleman is wearing a three piece suit, a wide neck tie, and a shirt with a formal collar. He appears to be quite intense and probably wasn't pleased that some of his hair when he learned that some of his hair was out of place in this photograph. The woman is wearing a ruffled top, fingerless gloves, a high collar, and a "busy" hat. She is holding a black parasol. Her clothing gives her a "bell shape". Like many portraits of couples in the cabinet card era, the man is sitting and the woman is standing. It likely would be a project for the woman to take a seat, never mind, look attractive and comfortable. This image is crisp and clear. The photographers were evidently talented. Information about Mr. Harnish was readily available but that was not the case for Mr Marquart. Harnish was born in Pennsylvania in 1847 to a family of German descent. He left the family farm at age nineteen and learned photography in Myerstown, Pa. He moved to Bluffton with his family in 1867. In 1871 he married Miss Laura Myers (born 1850). George Adam Harnish opened his first photography studio in Bluffton, Indiana in 1872. In 1881 he became a town councilman in Bluffton. He sold his photography business to Benjamin Ashbaucher in 1889. Marion is about 35 miles west of Bluffton. It is my hypotheses that Harnish began working in Marion after selling his first studio. Clearly that is where he partnered with Marquart. There is a photograph in the American Museum of  Photography that was taken by Harnish & Marquart in 1899.

orme-2

The top vintage real photo postcard features stage actress Miss Denise Orme. She is very attractive and beautifully dressed. She is wearing a fur stole and and fur muffs. She has a lovely hat and wonderful smile. Miss Orme's given name was Jessie Smither, and was later known as Duchess of Leinster. Denise Orme (1885-1960) was an English music hall singer, actress and musician who was a regular performeer at the Alhambra and Gaiety Theatres in London during the early years of the twentieth century. Her mother was a professor of music. She trained for her theatrical career at the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music. Her stage debut was in 1906 in the chorus at Daly's Theatre in London. Later that same year she appeared in the title role of "See See" at the Prince of Wales Theatre. In 1906 she participated in gramophone recordings of Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Mikado". Her marital history reveals that she had a predilection to choosing husbands that were "rich and famous". She was married to an English Baron, A Danish millionaire, and an Irish duke. She was the maternal grandmother of Aga Khan IV.who is the current Imam of Nizari Ismailism which is a denomination of of Ismailism within Shia Islam with 15 million adherents. He is also a British business magnate. Miss Orme's photographic portrait was taken by the Foulsham and Banfield Studio. Foulsham & Banfield were well known celebrity photographers. Frank Foulsham and A. C. Banfield operated a studio in the 1900's through the 1920's. The postcard was published by Rotary Photo and is part of the Rotary Photographic Series (#4098 Q). The postcard has a postmark from London, England, and dated 1907. The postmark date reveals that this portrait of Miss Orme was taken at the beginning of her stage career. In the message section of the postcard, the sender asks the receiver, "What do you think of Denise?". In addition, the sender asserts on the front of the postcard "Nice hat, isn't it?". I have to agree; not only is Miss Orme lovely, so is her hat.......  The second postcard shows the beautiful and well dressed Miss Orme peeking out from behind a curtain. The photographer is Alexander Bassano (1829-1913) who was a leading royal and high society photographer located in London. This postcard, like the first was published by Rotary Photo and is part of the Rotary Photographic Series (no. 1933 I)....... The third photo postcard portrait of Miss Orme presents a close-up profile view of this stunningly pretty young actress. Like the first two photo postcards, this one is also published by the Rotary Photo company and is part of the Rotary Photographic Series (no. 4098 M). The photograph was taken by "Play Pictorial" which was an English theatre magazine published in London between 1902 and 1939. The publication provided a pictorial presentation of West End theatrical productions with each issue focusing on just one play.
