A YOUNG WINTERIZED ETHNIC WOMAN AND HER GIANT MUFF

This vintage real photo postcard features a young woman posing in her winter jacket and her fur stole. Her winterized clothing also includes a cute hat and a giant muff. The fur muff will certainly keep her hands warm. In fact, these muffs are so large that they could probably keep three of her friends hands warm too. The woman in this photo, in my opinion, appears to be black or mulatto. This postcard was photographed by the USA studios which was located in London and the Provinces. USA Studios  was a firm established in England during the Edwardian period. It was established in around 1907. The firms focus was portrait photography. The company was also known as the American Photographic Company. The firm was started by either photographer John Harry Woolfe (1880-1942) or by his parents, Henry Wolfe (1852-1927)  and Mrs Fanny Wolfe (1854-?). John Harry Wolfe”s younger brother, William Swift Woolfe (1893-?), also became a photographer. John Harry became a photographer in the early 1900’s and bought an established London studio in 1907. The studios were very successful during World War I. The studios were all managed by Wolfe family members until World War II. John Harry’s mother, Mrs Fanny Woolfe, was listed as the proprietor of some of the USA studios. A list of the company’s studios indicates that there were at different times, fourteen studios in London and it’s nearby towns. These studios operated between 1907 and 1919. There were thirteen studios in the provinces and they were in operation cumulatively between 1907 and 1969. This vintage postcard is in very good condition.
