This cabinet card portrait features a baby sitting in a baby carriage. The carriage is a deluxe baby transporter. The vehicle looks well built and sits high off the ground. The carriage is accessorized with a large umbrella to protect the child from the sun or rain. The photographer of this image is Charles W. Rouse. He operated a photography studio in Jersey City, New Jersey. A list of early New Jersey photographers reveal that Charles Rouse operated out of at least six addresses in Jersey City during his career. In addition, at one point he ran a studio in Belmar, New Jersey. He conducted business at the address listed on this photograph (442 Palisade Avenue) between 1888 and 1894.  (SOLD)

  1. Amazing carriage

  2. Beautiful child and bonnet, and such a pretty carriage. 😍 I wish we had such beautifully decorative things like this one more commonly in our culture still today. ❤️
