A SAILOR AND HIS GUN ON DECK IN NEWPORT, RHODE ISLAND

 

A nice looking young sailor poses for his portrait at the Rembrandt Studio in Newport, Rhode Island. Newport is a seaport and the sailor was likely in town on leave. While visiting the area he decided to capture his likeness at the studio. Perhaps he sent the resulting photograph to his family or girlfriend. He, or the photographer, chose an appropriate background for the portrait. The sailor is depicted aboard a ship, in uniform, and holding a rifle with a bayonet. The lettering on his sailor cap can only be partially  read. The word “squadron” is proceeded by an unknown word which probably is the name of an area of the world where his ship was assigned. Perhaps a visitor to the cabinet card gallery can identify the sailors naval unit and rank. Research yielded no information pertaining to the Rembrandt Studio.   SOLD

LE PAGE’S LIQUID GLUE : HUMOROUS ADVERTISEMENT : TRADE CARD

Worse yet, he is in a “no loafing” zone. This glue is portrayed as so powerful, that not even five policemen can get him unstuck. Le Page’s Liquid Glue was manufactured by the Russia Cement Company of Gloucester, Massachusetts. The company was started by William Nelson Le Page (1849-1919). The firm was established in 1876. This lithograph trade card is a nice one. It’s very detailed and very colorful. The colors are quite sharp. There are a number of variants of this card. This trade card is in very good condition (see scans). SOLD

FRAMER : PUSHING CART OF MATERIAL AND TOOLS : HAVANA, CUBA : PRESS PHOTO (1988)

This vintage press photo features an older Cuban worker pushing his work cart down the street in Havana, Cuba. The cart seems to contain tools and materials. A translation site could only tell me that the man worked with frames in homes. I am hypothesizing that he is a framer. A stamp on the photo’s reverse indicates that the photograph was taken in 1988 and belonged to “Bohemia Fotografia”. It is likely that this image was used by “Revista Bohemia”; Cuba’s oldest general consumer magazine. This photograph measures about 4 3/4″ x 7 1/8″ and is in excellent condition.
