A KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR (CABINET CARD)

This cabinet card features a knight in shining armor. You can be sure that he did not ride up to the studio on his trusty steed. I wish I could report that this photograph’s subject was Sir Galahad, Richard the Lionhearted, or even one of the Three Musketeers. Unfortunately, the timing is a “little off”. Instead, the knight seen in this photograph is probably an actor. His armor is quite impressive. Note his gloves (gauntlets) and the hilt of his sword. His helmet is also interesting. He is wearing the helmet with the visor in the up position. This is a beautiful photograph and that is not surprising because it was taken by Emilie Bieber’s photo studio. Emilie Bieber (1810-1884) had two studios in Germany: Berlin and Hamburg. She operated the Hamburg studio 1852 through 1872, when she was joined by her nephew, Leonard Berlin-Bieber. Emilie Bieber died in 1884. This photograph was taken in 1906, after Emilie Bieber had died. The 1906 date of the photo is apparent by the fact that “1906” is embossed on the lower right hand corner of the image. That same date is stamped on the reverse of the cabinet card. This photograph is mounted on very thick cardstock. There is a “fault line” on the reverse of the image. It is barely visible in the scan. Due to the fact that the cardstock is thick, the “fault line” is only a cosmetic issue. The photo is in good condition (see scans).
