This vintage photograph features a fashionably dressed little boy posing next to a chair topped with a fur and a lace pillow. The child is absolutely adorable. This studio photograph was taken at the Mumbrauer studio in Hermann, Missouri. Robert C. Mumbrauer (1851-1917) operated his studio at Schiller and East Second Streets. His studio was built in 1892. Mumbrauer’s photographic career followed the basic steps of many other cabinet card era photographers. He taught himself the rudimentary elements of photography, trained for a year (in St. Louis), operated a mobile studio (in the Missouri River Valley) and then opened his own brick and mortar photography business. Mumbrauer married Amelia Carey in 1873 and settled in Hermann in 1876. When Mumbrauer died in 1917, he was succeeded in his business by his son Charles George Mumbrauer who operated the business until his death in 1935.
