PORTRAIT OF FRENCH FILM STAR MLLE BARBIER (PHOTOGRAPHED BY LEOPOLD REUTLINGER)

by bmarshphd
This exceptional real photo postcard comes from the Paris studio of Leopold Reutlinger. His subject for this photograph is a beautiful theatrical actress, Mlle Barbier. The actress is spectacularly dressed and wearing hoop earrings in this color tinted photograph. The postcard is part of a series published by SIP (no. 1357). The home of SIP (Societe Industrielle de Photograpie) was Rueil, France. Research did not yield a firm identification of Mlle Barbier. A strong possibility is that the attractive actress photographed for this postcard was Charlotte Barbier-Krauss (1877-1938). The French actress was best known for appearing in "The Empty Cradle" (1910), "Le calvaire de Dona Pia" (1925), and "Poil de carotte" (1925). In 1914, she married director Henry Krauss. Mlle Barbier's filmography includes about 34 films between 1909 and 1938. She is also credited with appearing in six plays between 1921 and 1937.

RARE CABINET CARD: LITTLE GIRL POSING IN FRONT OF A RAILROAD THEMED BACKDROP

by bmarshphd
This is quite a rare cabinet card. What makes the photograph unusual is the railroad themed backdrop. The young girl is standing in front of a faux railroad bridge. I have seen thousands of cabinet cards and I have never seen a similar backdrop. The little girl is wearing a dark dress with a collar pin. She is holding a fan. This photograph was taken at the Buchenau & Giegerich studio in Prairie Due Sac, Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Photographers Index reports that Hugo Buchenau operated a photography studio in Sauk City between at least 1891 and 1896. The 1870 US census reveals that Buchenau was born in Wisconsin in 1865 to immigrant parents. His father was a saloon keeper. The directory also states that he was partners with Mr Giegerich in 1887 through 1888 and possibly in other years. Mr. Giegerich's first name was likely Bertrand (aka Bert) based on the fact that local directories report a man with this name was a printer and newspaper publisher during this era.

TINTYPE PORTRAIT OF A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN

by bmarshphd
This tintype portrait features a beautiful young woman wearing a lovely dress. Her jewelry includes a bracelet and a ring. According to Wikipedia, tintypes were made by "creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of metal coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the photographic emulsion". Tintypes were most popular during the 1860's and 1870's.

CARTE DE VISITE PORTRAIT OF A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN IN PENZANCE, ENGLAND

by bmarshphd
This Carte de Visite features a very attractive and well dressed young woman. She appears to be in her teenage years or slightly beyond them. Her dress is very fancy and pretty. She is wearing a nicely decorated hat and is accessorized with a necklace and collar pin. Her hair is braided and it falls over her right shoulder. She is holding something in her hands and I am at a loss to identify what it is. Perhaps it is a handkerchief or a purse. The photographer of this cdv portrait is Robert H. Preston who operated a studio in Penzance. The town and port of Penzance are located in Cornwall, England. Robert Hawker Peniel Preston (1837-1931) was partners with Samuel Poole in the early part of his career. Later he operated his own studio until 1901. At some point, his son Richard Preston, worked with him in the photographic studio. Robert Preston married Harriet Snell Body and they had at least seven children. The advertising on the reverse of this carte de visite declares that Preston was one of the official photographers of the Prince and Princess of Wales.

PORTRAIT OF PRETTY BURLESQUE ACTRESS EDY VAYLAND

by bmarshphd
The pretty costumed blonde actress featured in this real photo postcard is Edy Vayland. She is wearing a fantastic headdress. This portrait is a bit risque for it's era. Preliminary research revealed zero information about this Belle Epoque theatre actress. The postcard is from the 1910's and was published in Italy by A. Traldi from the city of Milan. Traldi operated in Milan from 1902-1918. The publisher concentrated on view cards of Europe and the Middle East. They are also known for a series published that focussed on dogs. Research reveals that they produced a number of postcard portraits of European stage performers. If any visitors to the Cabinet Card Gallery have information about Miss Vayland, please leave a comment to educate the rest of us.

PORTRAIT OF TWO YOUNG MEN IN BRAINERD, MINNESOTA

by bmarshphd
This scallop edged vintage photograph features two teenage boys. The boy in the dark shirt and tie is quite handsome. They are both wearing suspenders. The photograph was taken by the Drysdale studio in Brainerd, Minnesota. James S. Drysdale (1862-1914?) operated his own studio but at one time he was a partner in the Quam & Drysdale gallery. Drysdale had a studio in both Brainerd and St. Cloud between about 1894 and 1899. The Quam and Drysdale studio was located in Walker, Minnesota (1900). Drysdale returned to Brainerd in 1901 and operated a studio there until 1904. Drysdale appears in the 1900 US census. Data indicates that he was Canadian born, immigrated in 1880, and a naturalized US citizen. At the time of the census he was living on the Chippewa Reservation in Cass, Minnesota. The census reports that his race was "White". Although he was listed as married (1899), he was living independently.

PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG BOY IN MAINE BY A PHOTOGRAPHER WITH A BIZARRE STORY

by bmarshphd
This scallop-edged cabinet card features a young boy posing for his photograph at the Swan studio in Norway, Maine. Some may argue that the child is actually a girl. However, it was common for young boys to wear skirt type clothing and have long hair. John Wesley Swan (1857-?) appears in the 1884 Portland, Maine city directory as a photographer. The 1900 US census reveals that Swan was Canadian born and lived in Norway with his wife (Annie) and their two daughters. Swan married his wife in 1883. According to Anthony's Photographic Bulletin (1900), Swan's studio was destroyed by fire and he lost a large number of valuable negatives of scenery in the area of Norway. The journal also states that the "loss was large and the insurance is said to be small". Swan was the official photographer of the Grand Trunk Railway system. He won a gold medal at the Paris Exposition according to Photo-Era magazine (1900). At one point in his career in Norway, Swan had a partner in his business (Swan & Cobb). John Wesley Swan was involved in a bizarre incident that made the annals of the history of Norway. The book,  "A History of Norway, Maine: From the Earliest Settlement to the Close of the Year 1922", tells a  mysterious story about Mr. Swan. While on a trip to Boston in 1893, Swan disappeared for a period of about six months. The writer states that Swan "claimed to have been sand-bagged and robbed in Boston and when he partially recovered consciousness found himself in New Orleans". His memory had "left him" and he wandered around until his memory returned while he was in Texas. Swan returned to Norway and explained his disappearance to his friends and family, and community. According to the writer, many doubted the validity of his explanation.

PORTRAIT OF A BEAUTIFUL MOTHER AND DAUGHTER IN BEMIDJI, MINNESOTA (BY FAMOUS PHOTOGRAPHER ROLAND REED)

by bmarshphd

This vintage photograph features a smartly dressed pretty woman with her adorable young daughter. The little girl's expression is absolutely priceless. The photograph was taken by the Reed studio in Bemidji, Minnesota. Bemidji is a Ojibwe (Chippewa) word that means "a lake with crossing waters". The town was chartered and organized in 1896. The town has been called the "curling capital" of the United States. An inscription on the reverse of the photograph has the name "Mary Keining". This is probably the name of the mother in this portrait. The photographer of this photograph was a well known American artist and photographer named Roland (Royal Jr.) W. Reed (1864-1934). He was part of an early 20th century group of photographers of Native Americans known as pictorialists. The pictorialist movement was influenced by the 19th century art movement of Impressionism. The pictorialists emphasized lighting and focus. They tried to recreate images as they may have been rather than as it was. A group of pictorialists took photographs of Native Americans and Native American life as it was before the damage wrought on the culture by reservations. Roland Reed was born in Wisconsin. He grew up with a strong caring interest in Native Americans and a desire for adventure. His first job when he left home was working in a Minnesota sawmill. In 1885 he worked for the Canadian Pacific Railroad and became familiar with the Plains Indians. He soon returned to Minnesota and used it as a home base for five years of exploration and adventure which included traveling to Tennessee, Arkansas, New Mexico, and finally Montana in 1890. He worked for the Great Northern Railway and utilized his artistic talent doing portrait sketches of Piegan and Blackfeet Indians as well doing landscape sketches and paintings. In 1893 he apprenticed with photographer Daniel Dutro in Havre, Montana. The pair eventually became partners in a studio and they also sold Native American photographs to the Great Northern Railway. For a short duration in 1897, Reed worked for the Associated Press in Alaska photographing the Klondike Gold Rush. He returned to Havre but in 1899 he opened a photo studio in Ortonville, Minnesota. He quickly developed a reputation for being an outstanding photographer of local landscapes and children. His business grew and he opened another studio in Bemidji. He frequently would leave his Bemidji studio to go photograph the Ojibwe Indians on nearby reservation. In 1907, he sold both of his studios and went to live near the Ojibwe Red Lake Reservation so he could focus on his work documenting Native Americans. He pursued this interest full time for two years. In 1909, Reed returned to Montana and opened a studio in Kalispell (the town near the western entrance of today's Glacier National Park. He operated the studio there and also sold copies of his Native American photographs and Native American arts and crafts. While in Kalispell he spent six years on a major project of ph0tographing the Plains Indians, including the Blackfeet, Piegan, Boood, Flathead and Cheyenne. While in Montana he became part of the state's community of artists. Included was western artist Charlie Russell. In 1913, Reed spent several months photographing the Navajo and Hopi in Arizona. That same year, Reed opened a branch of his photography studio in San Diego, California. After just a few years, he retired to Ortonville, Minnesota.  It didn't take too long for wanderlust to set in. In 1916 he built a cabin near Cable, Wisconsin where he spent half his time between there and Ortonville. In 1920 he relocated to Denver, Colorado, where he opened a new studio and remained in business for seven years. In 1930 he retired again, this time to San Diego. During this time he worked on a book of his photographs titled "Reed's Photographic Art Studies of the North American Indian". While visiting Colorado Springs in 1934 he was killed in an accident. Reed's work photographing Native Americans were funded by himself. He had little interest in having his photography utilized for advertising. He is known to have turned down an offer of fifteen thousand dollars for 200 negatives in order to ensure they would not be used commercially. In 1950, National Geographic Magazine licensed the rights to approximately forty of his photographs. A portrait of Roland Reed can be seen directly below.

ENGLISH THEATRE ACTRESS PAMELA GAYTHORNE AND HER NOT SO SUBTLE HAT

by bmarshphd
This vintage real photo postcard features English stage actress Pamela Gaythorne. She is quite attractive and wearing much jewelry and lace. Note her not so subtle hat. It looks as if a seagull is resting on her head.  Miss Gaythorne is captured in this image as she appeared in "The Fascinating Mr. Vanderveldt. She appeared in this theatre production with Violet Vanbrugh and Arthur Bourchier. The IBDB reveals that Miss Gaythorne appeared in, and often starred in, 12 Broadway productions. Her Broadway career spanned from "Keeping Up Appearances" (1910) through "This Fine-Pretty World" (1923). The New York Times (2/14/1911) reviewed a play named "Nobody's Daughter". Gaythorne appeared in this play and in writing about her, the reviewer wrote that he "heartily commends" her performance. The article adds that she played her character with "delightful spontaneity, charm, variety, and suggested youth and spirit, while touching the more sentimental passages with manifest sincerity". The photographers of this image was Foulsham and Banfield, a prolific celebrity postcard portrait studio. The postcard was produced by Rotary Photo and is part of a series (no. 4107 A). The message on this card is from Bob to Miss Marion Lipman and states "I will come in and see you when I go to the city". Also written in the message section is what appears to be "The Empire Confectionary". Perhaps a Cabinet Card Gallery visitor can throw some illumination on that term and also ascertain what nation the stamp of this postcard represents. The postcard is postmarked 1906.
