A young woman has her head in the clouds in this Bellevue, Iowa portrait. The photographic effect was created by photographer M. J. Streuser in his Front Street studio. On a sad note, it is likely that this portrait is actually a memorial cabinet card. My hypothesis is that the photographer used the effect to create a heavenly image of the woman.  To view other memorial cards, click on the category “Memorial Card”. This cabinet card portrait is in very good condition (see scans).

  1. Head in the clouds? Her hair *looks* like a cloud.

    Have you ever come across images with people sitting in a crescent moon? I’ve come across a group of vintage photos with single men or two men (and in one case a group of three men) posed sitting inside a crescent moon. Can’t seem to figure out the story…

    • I have come across several photo postcards of men or women sitting on a crescent moon (and we thought Neil Armstrong was the first person on the moon). Like you, I can’t figure out the story either. Interestingly, the film company, Dreamworks, has a logo of a man sitting on a crescent mood holding a fishing pole and dangling a fishing line. There is definitely something dreamy about the image. You and I are both psychologists and we should be able to come up with some kind of interpretation. In fact, cabinet cards are a bit like Rorschach, or TAT cards. Thanks for your comment.
