PORTRAIT OF A MOST ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL IN EAU CLAIRE, WISCONSIN

eau-claire-1

This vintage post cabinet card era photograph features an adorable little girl. She is quite expressive and appears to be in a playful mood. The photograph comes from the studio of R. G. Shaker of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Shaker is listed in a historical directory of Wisconsin photographers. The listing stats that he was a photographer in Eau Claire from 1897-1939. Rasmus Gudbrandsson Shaker (1862-1943) was born in Norway. His original last name appears to have been "Skjaak". He also was known as Robert G. Shaker. He came to Eau Claire in 1879 and worked in the forestry industry. One of his jobs was working in a saw mill. He learned photography from photographer M. W. Burns and took over his teacher's studio in 1895. R. G. married Olea Isakson in 1887 and the couple had five children. His son, Gilbert (1889-?), was a photographer in Eau Claire between 1914 and 1916. R. G. Shaker is buried in Eau Claire's Forest Hill Cemetery. Judging by this image, Shaker had talent. This is a wonderful portrait of an adorable little girl.

A highly fashionable and pretty young woman poses for her portrait at an unidentified studio. She is wearing two bracelets, a ring, and a what looks to be, a strand of pearls. She certainly knows how to wear a hat and not hide her beauty. This is a vintage real photo postcard produced by a private studio. The card's stamp box indicates that the  postcard stock was produced by Crown Studios sometime between 1913 and 1929.

MARIE WAINWRIGHT: PORTRAIT OF A THEATRE ACTRESS (PHOTOGRAPHED BY SARONY)

by bmarshphd

 

wainwright

These cabinet cards feature Marie Wainwright (1853-1923), an American stage actress and singer. She also appeared in three silent films between 1918  and 1920. Most of her fame came from the Victorian stage. She was born in Philadelphia and as educated in Paris, France. She received her acting training in Paris. Her first stage appearance was in New York in "Romeo and Juliette (1877)". Her career flourished afterward. She spent many years in the Boston Museum company and later on, operated her own theatre company. During her career, she was the leading lady for Edwin Booth, Lawrence Barrett, and other well known actors. She appeared primarily in classics and high dramas until the turn of the century. She then appeared in more contemporary productions. Her resume includes roles in "H. M. S. Pinafore" and "Diplomacy". When asked why she entered the acting profession, in a New York Times interview (1878), she stated that she did it for her children's sake. Wainwright claimed that she was married before the age of fifteen, and had three kids before she turned twenty-one years of age. She stated that her husband was not supporting her and the children, and she needed to work for financial reasons. It appears that the breakup of Wainwright's marriage was a hot news item. The marital conflict was quite dramatic and there were some questions about Ms. Wainwright's character. The top  photographic portrait is by Sarony's New York City  studio. Sarony was a famous celebrity photographer and other examples of his work can be seen by clicking on the category labelled "Photographer: Sarony". This image shows Wainwright wearing a white gown and bonnet. She is holding a book and rosary beads.

The second cabinet card was also photographed by Sarony. Miss Wainwright certainly was a pretty woman. The reverse of the cabinet card has an inscription describing some aspects of her career. There is also a stamp from a photographic supply dealer on the photo's reverse. The dealer is C. E. Hopkins whose business was located in Brooklyn, New York. Mr Hopkins was an excellent self promoter as illustrated by mention of his name and business in several photographic journals of his time. For example, "Photographic Times" (1890) recounts that one of Mr Hopkins's amateur customers produced a series of photographs pertaining to a duel, that Mr Hopkins had shared with the publication. It is likely that this cabinet card portrait of Miss Wainwright once could be found "for sale" in C. E. Hopkins's shop.

PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG WOMAN AND HER ATTENTION GRABBING WINTER COAT IN HEREFORD, ENGLAND

by bmarshphd

fur-coat

This cabinet card portrait features a young woman posing for her portrait at the Ladmore & Son studio in Hereford, England. The woman is certainly making a fashion statement. I think the statement is "Please notice me". The trim on her coat looks like black and white fur. The bottom of her sleeves also have fur trim. She is wearing black leather gloves. The trim on the front of her coat looks very much like she is wearing a long boa, though I think the trim is most likely part of her coat. She is wearing quite the plain hat, relative to her stylish overcoat. The reverse of the photograph has an inscription with the young lady's name and age (19 years old). The location that this photograph was produced is Hereford which is a town in Herefordshire, England. The town is on the Wye River and about 16 miles from Wales.

A PHOTOGENIC FAMILY POSES FOR THEIR PORTRAIT (1917 REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

beautiful-family

This vintage real photo postcard captures a very photogenic family posing at a photographic studio in 1918. The photographer must have loved photographing this crew. The mother is quite pretty and she stares at the camera with icy but engaging eyes. The oldest of the siblings is wearing nautical clothing and is posed in a manner in which he seems to be protective of his family. By the way, where is dad? Mom is wearing a wedding band but father is missing from the photograph. The younger two children are adorable and definitely are sticking close to mom. This family could be doing commercials on television if there was such a thing in 1918. This scalloped edged postcard is unmailed.

PRETTY STAGE ACTRESS: MISS DOROTHY CHARD (1909 REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

by bmarshphd

actress

This vintage real photo postcard features Edwardian theater actress Miss Dorothy Chard. Preliminary research yielded little information about her life and her career. More intensive research is required to uncover biographical information. The Internet Broadway Data Base (IBDB) notes that Miss Chard appeared in eleven Broadway shows from 1926 through 1930. She played in musicals but she primarily appeared in comedies. Among her credits are "Merry-Go-Round" (1927) and "Cinderelative" (1930). The dearth of information about Miss Chard reveals that she certainly was not a leading actress of her time but she certainly was beautiful and well known enough to merit the publishing of a photo postcard by the Rotary Postcard company. This postcard was part of the Rotary Photographic series (no. 4353 A). The photograph of Dorothy Chard appearing on this postcard was taken by the Foulsham & Banfield Studio.The pair were well known celebrity photographers. Frank Foulsham and A. C. Banfield operated a studio from the 1900's through the 1920's. The postcard is postmarked 1909 from Edinburg, Scotland. Edinburg is Scotland's capital city. The content of the message on this postcard mentions "fresh cards" referring to newly released photo postcards. Collecting such cards was a popular hobby during this era. I guess this hobby was a precursor to collecting pokemon. I prefer collecting photo portraits. Call me "old school".

PRETTY WOMAN ON THE ROCKS (1932 REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

by bmarshphd

beach-scene

A very pretty woman sits on the rocks and poses for this splendid vintage real photo postcard portrait. The woman sits on the rocks along the shore of an unidentified body of water. The young woman is wearing a summer dress and has a parasol beside her. It is amazing to me how, dressed in a relatively tame fashion, she is just as attractive as any scantily clad model that appears in the Sports Illustrated bathing suit issue. I will admit, that the photographer most certainly posed her to reveal her partially uncovered calves. I guess sexual provocativeness sells postcards as well as magazines. This postcard has a message that is dated 1932. It was published by L. Bergeret of Paris, France. I don't know if there is a connection between L. Bergeret and Albert Bergeret (1859-1932). Albert was a leading French postcard producer in France who operated in the city of Nice. In 1900 he produced 25 million cards and by 1903 he published 75 million postcards. I am wondering if L Bergeret may have been a successor to Albert Bergeret. L. Bergerets images seem to cluster in the 1930's.

This cabinet card photograph features a Bulgarian uniformed military officer and his wife. The officer is wearing a medal on his chest and is holding a pair of dress gloves. He is wearing high boots which may indicate that he is a member of the cavalry. The soldier's wife is quite pretty. She is clutching a purse and wearing a pair of leather gloves. An inscription on the reverse of the photograph indicates that this portrait was taken in 1916. The photographer was C. Balus and the location of his studio was in Rousse  (Pyce), Bulgaria. Rousse is currently the fifth largest city in Bulgaria. It is in the northeastern part of the country and is located on the banks of the Danube. The city is often called "Little Vienna".

This vintage real photo postcard features six soldiers standing at attention. Each of the men are holding sabres. Note the soldiers elaborate hats. The men appear to be Hussars. A Hussar is a soldier who was a member of one of several types of light cavalries operating during the 18th and 19th centuries. The term originally is derived from the late medieval cavalry of Hungary but the term later applied to light cavalry units of other European armies of the time. This postcard was produced in Great Britain by photographer Fred Arthur. Initial research reveals that he had a studio in Liverpool.

A TODDLER AND HER BEAUTIFUL AND PROTECTIVE BLACK DOG

by bmarshphd

dog-and-kid-1

A little girl, likely toddler age, sits on a chair, and looks at the photographer with an expression of dismay. Sitting below the child is a black dog in a protective position. The dog does not seem to be enjoying himself either. The dog has a similar appearance to a Labrador Retriever. Note the unusual and beautiful chair that is occupied by the toddler. Also note the rope on the floor which can be seen in the right side of the image. I wonder if the rope is holding the child in place or the dog in place. The photographer of this photograph is J. P. Eskildsen and his studio was located in Lawler, Iowa. An inscription on the reverse of the photo indicates that the child's name is Mary Redman. J. Peter Eskildsen was born in Denmark in 1870. He married Emma Schlatter in Lawler (1891). The couple had at least one child. Arthur Eskildsen was born in 1893. J. P. found a path to citizenship in 1895. Research reveals that he may have had additional studios in Iowa besides the one in Lawler (Fredericksburg, Jerico, and Waucoma). Initial investigation found some information about young Mary Redman. She appears in the 1910 US census along with the rest of her family. They Redman's were living in Stapleton, Iowa. Living in the residence was Mary's parent's John W. Redman (born 1860) and Trena M. Redman (born 1867). Also in the home were Mary's (age 4) siblings; Hazel (age 19), Lee (age 18), Lowman (age 15), and Harold (age 13). The 1920 US census finds the family still living in Stapleton but the household has shrunk to include Mary's father (worked as a carpenter), sister Hazel (worked as a teacher), and of course Mary (attended school). Mary's mom likely had passed away and sister Hazel likely took up some parenting duties.

This wonderful vintage photograph features a Womens Basketball team which apparently just completed a championship season. The image includes seven girls in uniform and their coach. Three of the girls are holding trophies. All of the girls look like their having a good time. There is an abundance of smiles as the photographer shoots his picture. Even the coach seems to be enjoying the moment. As customary, the basketball has been marked with the date. The girls are celebrating completion of the 1923 season. Their team's name and their location are unidentified. This image is an important piece of womens basketball history. Note the girls uniforms and their sneakers. There appears to be some variety in their footwear. The reverse of the photograph has an inscription that must summarize the girl's experiences as a member of the basketball squad. The writing happily declares "Ye Old Team....Best Ever". This vintage photograph measures about 8"x10".

BEAUTIFUL BUT NOT SO TALENTED THEATER ACTRESS: NORA KERIN

by bmarshphd

kerin

The top 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).                                                                                                                 The second postcard portrait of Miss Kerin is also a good representation of her beauty. In addition she is wearing a beautiful lace dress and an extraordinary hat. The photographers of this terrific image, Foulsham & Banfield were well known celebrity photographers. Frank Foulsham and A. C. Banfield operated a studio in the 1900's through the 1920's. This postcard is part of the Rotary Photographic Series (no. 1796 H) and is of English origin and is postmarked 1907.                                                                                                        The third postcard features Nora Kerin in her role as Juliet in "Romeo and Juliet". Unlike the first two portraits, in this image she is wering her hair down and is projecting an air of innocence through the placement of her hands and her vulnerable expression. Just like the top postcard, this image was photographed by Rita Martin and the postcard was part of the Rotary Photographic Series (1796 S) by the Rotary Photo Company.

PORTRAIT OF LILY ELSIE: BEAUTIFUL AND TALENTED STAGE ACTRESS (VINTAGE RPPC)

by bmarshphd

ian 1

This vintage real photo postcard features celebrated stage actress Miss Lily Elsie (1886-1962). At the time of her portrait sitting for this image, Miss Elsie was also known as "Mrs. Ian Bullugh". More about that later. Lily Elsie was a very popular English actress and singer. She was most known for her starring role in the London production of "The Merry Widow (1907)". The show ran for 778 performances. A critic for The Pelican (1907) wrote that "the youthfulness, the dainty charm and grace, the prettiness and the exquisite dancing with which Miss Elsie invests the part.... I share the opinion of most of the first-nighters, who considered it could not have been in better hands, and could not have been better handled.... The night was a genuine triumph for Miss Elsie, and she well deserved all the calls she received". She began as a child actress and before her big break had appeared in a number of Edwardian musical comedies. She was charming and beautiful and became one of the most photographed actresses of her time. Lily Elsie's dad was a theater worker and her aunt was well known actress Ada Reeve. Shortly after the turn of the century she joined George Edwardes' company at the Daly Theater. Some of her early appearances included "A Chinese Honeymoon", "Lady Madcap", "The Little Michus (1905)". In the years between 1900 and 1906 she appeared in 14 shows. After the "Merry Widow" she appeared in  26 more shows including "The Dollar Princess" (1909) and "A Waltz Dream" (1911). She clearly was an actress who was in demand. Men paid her much attention but apparently she did not enjoy the attention. Lucile, her costume designer for "The Merry Widow" stated that Elsie was "absolutely indifferent to men and had once said that she disliked "the male character". She added that men would only behave well if a woman "treated them coldly". Now, some words about her marriage. In 1911 she he left the cast of a play in which she was performing to marry Major John Ian Bullough (1885–1936). Major Bullough was the son of a wealthy textile manufacturer. He was formerly married to actress Maude Darrell who only survived one year after their 1909 marriage. The marriage between Elsie and Bullough was reported to be very unhappy. Elsie's health began to deteriorate and her husband pressured her to quit the stage and she was ready to do so. She returned to the stage during the war years (World War I) and was active in fund raising for the war effort. She next took a ten year break from the stage only to return once again. Her final performance took place in the Daly Theater in the play "The Truth Game" (1929). In addition to her theater career, Elsie made recordings, and appeared in two films, including D. W. Griffith's "The Great Love" (1918). Also appearing in that film was Lillian Gish. In 1930 Elsie's marriage ended in divorce. Her health began to deteriorate more and she developed hypochondriasis causing her to spend much time in nursing homes and sanitariums. Due to her psychological problems she had brain surgery. Her final years were spent at St. Andrews hospital in London. This postcard is part of a series (Arcadian no. A 26). The photographer of this image of this beautiful actress is the well known celebrity photographer, Rita Martin. She was considered one of the best British photographers of her time. She opened her studio in 1906. Martin's sister, Lallie Charles was an esteemed society photographer. Many of Rita's photographs can be found in the National Portrait Gallery.

mounting

This vintage real photo postcard features a handsome young cavalry man mounting his horse. The soldier is in uniform and wearing boots. The horse is calmly standing by at the ready. The cavalry man appears to hold the rank of sergeant. The postcard's stamp box indicates that it was published sometime between 1918 and 1930. World War I was from 1914 through 1918, so there is a possibility that this soldier was involved in the war. An inscription on the reverse of the postcard indicates that the soldier's name was Bert Stimson.

CHILD BRIDE AND CHILD GROOM: A TOM THUMB WEDDING PORTRAIT (VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH)

child wedding

child wedding 1

This vintage photograph features two beautiful children in a wedding portrait. The bride and groom in this image were likely participants in a "Tom Thumb Wedding". Such wedding were not uncommon after the 1863 wedding of P. T. Barnum's side show actor Tom Thumb and Lavinia Warren (also a dwarf/little person). Ten thousand guests attended General Thumb's wedding and the couple were received by President Lincoln. Now, back to the children in this image. A number of people held weddings between very young children. There were fake ceremonies but real receptions. Quite often these events were held as money-makers for charities. The bride and groom in this image are well dressed and coiffed. The bride is amazingly well poised.They truly look like a miniature wedding couple. To view other vintage "Tom Thumb" photographs, click on the category "Tom Thumb Wedding Portraits".

TWO COWBOYS WEARING WOOLY CHAPS: ONE OF THEM IS TIED UP (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

by bmarshphd

cowboys

This vintage real photo postcard captures two cowboys in an interesting scene. One of the cow pokes is tied up as if he's a criminal. "They hang horse thieves around these parts" says the cowboy to his prisoner. Heaven forbid! Although this image is a studio photo and the cowboys almost definitely borrowed their cowboy outfits from the photographer's prop room, the men's costumes are terrific. Their western hats, neckerchiefs, belts, and wooly chaps make the image look authentic. The rope is a nice touch. The photographer who took this photograph was certainly seeking realism. The AZO stamp box on the reverse of this postcard informs us that the image was produced sometime between 1904 and 1918. This photo postcard reminds me of one of my favorite cabinet cards in the Cabinet Card Gallery. You can view the cabinet card by clicking the link below.

This wonderful vintage photograph features an adorable little girl pushing her doll in a three wheel stroller. Her dog is sitting, on alert, right next to her. The child is adorably dressed, note her decorative hat. The girl and the photographer are unidentified. The young girl appears to be somewhat overwhelmed, or intimidated, by the process of having her portrait taken. This image is probably from the 1910's and it measures about 3" x 6".

PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG WEDDING COUPLE IN SAALFELD, GERMANY

by bmarshphd

kraatzert

This carte de visite is a wedding portrait that was taken by the Kratzert studio in Saalfeld, Germany. Like many wedding photographs of the time, we see the groom sitting and the bride standing. The couple appear to be relatively young. The pretty bride is wearing a wedding gown with a high collar. She is wearing a necklace and holding a bouquet of flowers. The groom is well dressed in his three piece suit and is displaying a poor version of a pensive expression. He appears to be uncomfortable, while his bride seems significantly more relaxed. The couple were photographed at a studio in the town of Saalfeld, which is the capital of the Saalfeld Rudolstadt district of Thuringia. The town is located in the valley of the Saale River.

THE «WILD MEN» OF PRAIRIE CITY, ILLINOIS

by bmarshphd

crane

Who are these guys? I suppose we will never know. This cabinet card photograph features two older men posing for their portrait at the Crane studio in Prairie City, Illinois. The men are pretty well dressed. Both are wearing long coats and hats. One imagines that this photograph was taken during the winter, judging by the men's clothing. The gentleman on the right side of the image has an appearance of someone who likely did not live a traditional lifestyle. His appearance might have earned him a part in a movie about a wild man living a bit away from civilization. That is, if there were movies during the cabinet card era. Of course I realize that my hypothesis could be very wrong. As much as I love to conjecture about the people in these vintage photographs, I am clear that our interpretations may reveal more about ourselves than about the subjects in the images. These old photos can be similar to the projective tests (ie the Rorshach)  employed by Psychologists. Gathering information about the photographer of this image was problematic. More thorough research could reap some very interesting results. The only photographer named Crane that I could find in the Prairie City area was Maria Ann Crane who operated a studio right in Prairie City. According to the Yale University library collection of "Women in Photography", Miss Crane operated a studio in Prairie City in 1893. The library collection includes two of her portraits. Crane may have been an independent photographer, or like many other pioneer women in photography, she may have joined or succeeded her husband in the photography business.

CROWN PRINCE WILHELM AND PRINCESS CECILIE OF GERMANY (PRESS PHOTO)

by bmarshphd

wilhelm

This vintage press photograph features Crown Prince Wilhelm and his wife, Crown Princess Cecilie. The photo was taken by George Grantham Bain in 1915 and it likely appeared in a number of newspapers.Some readers may be wondering about these Royals. Who are these people? Prince Wilhelm (1882-1951) was the last Crown Prince of Prussia and the German Empire. He married Duchess Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (1886-1954) in 1905. The pair's marriage wasn't rock solid. The Crown Prince had affairs with both American opera singer Geraldine Farrar and dancer Mata Hari. The photographer of this photograph was a pioneer news photographer. George Grantham Bain (1865-1944) was a New York City photographer known as "the father of photographic news". He was a chemistry graduate of St Louis University and also received a law degree there. He then became a reporter for two St. Louis newspapers in succession and one of his assignments was Washington DC correspondent. He then worked for United Press International and in 1898 started the Bain News Service. Forty thousand of Bain's glass negatives are in the collection of the Library of Congress. This vintage press photo was published by the Bain News Service.

PORTRAIT OF FOUR LOVELY AND BEAUTIFULLY DRESSED JAPANESE STUDENTS IN FUKUI, JAPAN (VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH)

japanese girls 1

This vintage photograph features four lovely and beautifully dressed Japanese girls.Two of the girls are holding parasols and all four are wearing hair bows. The previous owner of the card shared some information about this image. I was told that the girls were students and dressed in Hakama style. Hakama are a type of traditional Japanese clothing. The Imperial Chinese court wore trousers during the Sui and Tang dynasties and the Japanese adopted this style in the sixth century. Hakama are tied to the waist and fall down to near the ankles. They are worn over a kimono. According to the previous owner this wardrobe was popular among students during the Meiji period (1868-1912) and Taisho period (1912-1926). This photograph was taken during either the latter Meiji era or sometime during the Taisho era. The photographer of this wonderful image is S. Noji and his studio was located in Fukui, Japan. The city is located on the coast of the Sea of Japan. This photograph measures about 8 1/2 " x 6 1/2". The cabinet card gallery has a number of photographs originating in Japan which can be seen by clicking on the category "Japan".

ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL WITH A TRIANGLE HAT IN LAFAYETTE, INDIANA (VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH)

by bmarshphd

minicab

The little girl featured in this vintage photograph apparently is a "girly girl". That phrase is not meant to be a slur; it just means that she enjoys the more feminine look. She is wearing a frilly dress, her hair is nicely braided and has a pretty bow, and she is wearing an elaborate hat. The front of the hat is nearly triangle shaped and it is adorned with flowers and a feather. The Himea & Elam studio of Lafayette, Indiana, is the creator of this vintage image. Chas Himea is listed in the 1910 US census. He was born in Maryland in 1872 and died in Indiana in 1944. His wife was named Estella but she was also known as Ella. At the time of the census the couple had a thirteen year old son (Leslie) and Chas was working as a photographer. His name appears in a number of Lafayette business directories between 1903 and 1915. Interestingly, the 1957 directory lists a photography store bearing the Himea name. Himea's partner was Warren G. Elam.  Elam was born in Indiana (1874) and married Alice Elam in 1899. He is listed in the 1900 US census as a photographer but, by at least 1920,  he was out of the profession and living in California.

This cabinet card features a pretty young woman, probably a teenager, posing for her portrait at the Grunseth studio in either Waterford or Mukwonago, Wisconsin. The subject is well dressed with a fancy collar and choker. The Wiconsin Photographers Index, published by the Wisconsin Historical Society lists two photographers named Grundseth in the Waterford/Mukwonago area. One of these men is the photographer who took this photograph. Christ. Grundseth operated a studio in Mukwonago and Waukesha beginning 1895. G. Grundseth had a studio in Waterford between 1893 and 1898. Whichever Grundseth produced this photograph, he did an excellent job of capturing this young woman's beauty and personality.

PORTRAIT OF A WEDDING COUPLE IN SYRACUSE, NEW YORK

by bmarshphd

syracuse

This post cabinet card era photograph features a young wedding couple in Syracuse, New York. The groom is formally dressed with a tuxedo/suit, white collar dress shirt, bow tie, and white gloves. He is wearing a flower on his lapel. The bride is wearing a wedding dress, holding a bouquet of flowers and wearing flowers on her dress and in her hair. She is also wearing a necklace. Both the bride and groom are displaying serious expressions as they embark on the beginning of their marital life together. The photograph was taken by James Krawczyk. His obituary appears in Utica's (New York) Daily Press (1959). In 1959, Krawczyk had moved to Utica and died just a week later at the age of 71. The article reports that he had been born in Poland in 1888 and came to Utica in 1902. He then moved to Syracuse in 1910. While living in Syracuse, he operated a photography studio for 33 years, retiring in 1958. Krawcyk was involved with a number of Polish organizations in Syracuse. This photograph measures 6" x 9".
