stlouisbikekidA curly haired young boy with tightly pursed lips poses for his portrait at the carpeted Rino studio in St. Louis, Missouri. The studio was located at 801 Franklin Avenue at the time this photograph was taken. Even though the boy in this image projects a less than desirable expression, this is a wonderful portrait of a turn of the century tricycle. August Rino is listed in “Pioneer Photographers from the Mississippi to the Continental Divide” (2005). Rino was active in Chicago between about 1858 and 1860 and operated in St. Louis between 1860 and 1875.

  1. There seems not to be a direct way to reply to this post via email without knowing the owner of this blog, so if I may ask in the comment column about this, do you ever sell some of the cabinet cards you post to your blog? If this one is possibly available, may I kindly inquire after it’s cost, or can I email you about that?
