MISS JOAN KEDDIE : PRETTY ACTRESS WITH A SENSE OF HUMOR

This vintage real photo postcard features a pretty actress named Joan Keddie. Preliminary research found very little biographical information about her. An article in the “Black and White Budget” (1902) includes an interview with Miss Keddie. The article  focuses on collecting anecdotes from theatrical performers. Keddie tells an “amusing” but “annoying” story of an experience she had while on tour. She asserts that a performer’s life is not a “bed of roses” and that there are some little hardships that must be endured. She asserts that one of these annoyances is having to deal with landladies as the touring company goes place to place. She states that the landladies often look for devious ways to inflate the bill. She recounts the experience she had with one such proprietor, who, at the end of her stay, presented her with a bill that included charges for salt, pepper, and vinegar which she had used while dining. Keddie declares that she was very surprised that she wasn’t charged for the paper that the bill was written on. It appears that Joan Keddie had a good sense of humor. The “Sphere” (1902), has a review of “Merrie England” (1902), a play in which Keddie was a cast member. The article states that her acting showed “distinct promise”. This postcard was published by Rotary Photo and was part of the Rotary Photographic Series (no, 1741 A). Her photo portrait was taken by Stage Pictorial, a theater magazine. Individual portrait postcards featuring Joan Keddie are uncommon. This vintage postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

TWO LOVELY SISTERS DISPLAY AN AFFECTIONATE POSE IN KOKINIA, GREECE

This vintage photograph features two young ladies in an affectionate pose. They appear to be teenagers and they are likely, sisters. This photograph was taken in Greece. The studio was located in Kokkinia, a suburb of Athens. After 1940, Kokkinia became known as Nikaia so it is likely that this photo was taken before 1940. The image measures about  2 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and is in excellent condition. (see scans)

PORTRAIT OF A FASHIONABLE WOMAN IN PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA

This cabinet card photograph features a fashionable young woman. Her plain dress is spiced up with a fancy collar and a sash. She is accessorized with two bracelets and what appears to be a chain and pocket watch. She was photographed by the Morris studio in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. United States census data reveals some biographical information about the photographer of this cabinet card. J. G. Morris was located in the 1880 census. He was about 29 years old and he and his father (David Morris) were both working as photographer agents. In 1900, Morris and his 18 year old son, Harry, were boarders, and the older Morris was working as a photographer while the younger Morris was employed s a photographer apprentice. The 1910 U.S. Census finds Morris  still working as a photographer and living with his wife, Mary P. Morris. To view other photographs by Morris, click on the category “Photographer: Morris”.

LUCY JOUSSET : PRETTY STAGE AND FILM ACTRESS (PORTRAIT BY LEOPOLD REUTLINGER)

This vintage real  photo postcard features stage and film actress Lucy Jousset (1884-1914). She is beautifully dressed. Note her beaded necklace and large hat. She also has a feathered wrap partially around her shoulders. Jousset’s IMDb filmography includes three films, all produced in 1914. Unfortunately, she lived a short life, dying at the young age of thirty years old. The cause of her death and additional biographical details were not determined in my preliminary research. Miss Jousset’s portrait was taken by celebrated theatrical photographer, Leopold Reutlinger of Paris, France. This postcard was published by Societe Industrielle de Photograpie (SIP) of Rueil, France, as part of a series (no 14-65). The postcard is postmarked in Arlon, Belgium (1907.) The postcard is in very good condition (see scans).   SOLD

LITTLE GIRL SITTING ON A WINDOW LEDGE WITH MOM STANDING BEHIND HER “DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME BOYS AND GIRLS!”

This vintage snapshot photograph features a little girl sitting on a window ledge. Her mother is standing behind her squinting out the window. I think the child is in a dangerous position. She could easily fall out of the window, even if her mother is holding her. This photograph was taken in Europe by an amateur photographer. The photographer took a creative, but dangerous, photo. This snapshot measures about 2 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ and is in fair condition. It has no tears or pinholes but it is worn (see scans).
