MISS MARJORY MOORE – PRETTY PERFORMER WITHOUT A PAST

This real photo postcard features a pretty performer named Miss Marjory Moore. She looks quite young, possibly in her teenage years. My preliminary research into the background of Miss Moore produced “bupkis”. Perhaps a visitor to this blog can provide some biographical details about this performer. Miss Moore’s portrait was taken by Lewis R. Protheroe who operated a studio in Bristol, England. He was working as a photographer, at least between 1901 and 1917. His father, Thomas Protheroe found the studio between approximately 1876 and 1900. I was unable to locate any other photographs of Marjory Moore. This rare photo postcard was published by Rotary Photo  and is in very good condition (see scans),

ONE OF “THE BOYS IN THE BAND” IN SHELBYVILLE, ILLINOIS

trombone

trombone 1

The gentleman featured in this cabinet card is clearly a member of a band. He is wearing a band uniform and holding his trombone. Note his cap and bow tie. The studio which produced this image was Babb’s Ground Floor Gallery in Shelbyville, Illinois. James A. Babb (1855-?) and Jacob P. Babb (1857-1908) were the proprietors of Babb’s photographic studio. James was a native of Missouri and worked on a farm until 1879  when he came to Sullivan, Illinois and worked in a photographic gallery. He then returned to Missouri (Jefferson City) and worked for a photographer named S. Winans. He then moved to Shelbyville where he worked several years in the grocery business until he and his brother Jacob, established a Photography business. James Babb married Miss Mollie E. Oliver of Shelbyville. Jacob Babb was also a Missouri native and started his work life as a farmer. At age twenty-four he began working in the lumber industry and in 1883 he began a career in photography with the same S. Winans previously mentioned. His next job change occurred when he partnered with his brother in the Shelbyville gallery. In 1887 Jacob married Miss Anna Sampson of Shelbyville.  The major source of information concerning the Babb brothers was the “Illinois Genealogy Trails” section on Shelby County. This cabinet card portrait is in good condition (see scans).

“HONOR TO THE OLD SOLDIERS, COURAGE FOR THE ROOKIES” – GROUP PHOTO OF WORLD WAR I ERA FRENCH SOLDIERS

military group 3

military group 4 This vintage real photo postcard features a group of World War I era French soldiers. Two men in the front row are holding a sign. The men are part of the 148th regiment (?). The text on the sign is related to a French military slogan that states “Honneur aux anciens, courage aux bleus”. This roughly translates to “honor to the old soldiers, courage for the rookies”. In French, “bleu” means “rookie”. The slogan refers to the historical fact that in the late 1700’s, rookies wore blue uniforms, while more veteran soldiers wore white uniforms. This vintage postcard has excellent clarity and is in very good condition.
