PORTRAIT OF THE WEAVER FAMILY AND THEIR LOOM (VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH)

This vintage photograph features a young woman at a loom. There are four more people in the room but we are compelled to guess who they are. My hypothesis is that the children belong to the young woman and the gentleman on the bench is her husband. The man standing may be the grandfather to the children. Your guess is as good as mine. A knowledgeable source asserts that this image dates back to Imperial Russia (c. 1917). There is a question clawing at me. I wonder if this photograph was taken in a weaving room, or if the photo was taken in a photographer’s studio. The walls of the room appear to be painted, as if they are backdrops. However, I have never seen a loom used as a prop in vintage photographs. This photo is in very good condition (see scans).

  1. One possibility. This seems to be concurrent with ‘itinerant’ photographers (some very good) who literally went from door to door and recorded people ‘on site’. A hard way to make a living. Thankfully, I have family records, photos, that wouldn’t exist otherwise. Just a thought. The lighting is particularly good and very natural. I notice they didn’t sweep the floor first.
