Two adorable kids pose for photographer Rud Bachmann whose studio was located on Broadway in New York City. The older child is holding a walking stick. It is very likely that the children are siblings. The photographer’s full name is Rudolph Bachmann. He was born in 1850 in Switzerland. He came to the United States in about 1880 and by 1884 was operating a photography business at 1437 Broadway in New York City. The gallery remained at that address until 1922 when the studio was relocated to 6 East 14th Street. Cabinet cards published after 1914 indicate that he was joined in business by his son.

  1. Cute picture! To my mind the image is so quaint and old-fashioned and the font is so boldly modern, it’s an interesting juxtaposition.

  2. Oh I love this….could you tell me where I could get a copy…could I copy this? They are so sweet….I’d love to tuck them in a little frame on my piano.
