The couple in this photograph are attractive and handsomely dressed. The woman is wearing a fashionable hat and gloves, and is holding an arrangement of flowers.  The gentleman is formally dressed, holding a pair of gloves, and wearing a corsage. He is also holding, what appears to be a top hat.  The couple is likely  from the wealthy and privileged class. The photographer is named Palast, or something close to that name. The legibility of  the name of the photographer is not clear and any help from cabinet card gallery visitors  in identifying the photographer, would be appreciated. The photographer’s studio was located in Vienna, Austria.

  1. Palast is palace in German and I guess there were a few studios about that were called “palace”. Can you read anything else on it?

  2. “Photographie Palast” probably is not a photographers name, but a name he signed his studio (“Palast” means “palace” and was a favourite name also for cinemas), situated in Vienna, 2nd district, named Leopoldstadt (1020 Wien), adressed “An der Marienbrücke” – today, this would be no exact postal location, but you can easily find the bridge on th city map.

  3. It looks like a wedding photograph to me:)

  4. I dont know the photographer, but the woman looks like my grandmother s sister, Elisabeth Menyhért and the man as her husband Michael Hirth, who was a famous doctor in Pápa (hungarian city). I think, they married in 1918.
