This cabinet card portrait captures a well dressed family posing for their photograph at the Wendel Studio in New York City. Note the couples fashionista son. He certainly is a “dandy”. This photograph is a carbon print (Carbonette).  (SOLD)

  1. What makes a photo a Carbonette? Is it the specific printing process? Were all Carbonettes labeled as such? Thanks in advance for any info., as I could not seem to find much online on the topic.

    • Carbonette is a type of finish used in the production of cabinet cards. I found no other information when I did an internet search. You posed an interesting question. I will keep digging and will offer new information if I find some.

      • Okay and many thanks! Happy New Year! 🥂

  2. The little guy’s facial features favors his mother but those ears came from his father.

  3. Hello
    I am going through my deceased father’s estate and I found a picture that appears to be taken in 1888 at the Lindner Studios in Chicago. Is there any way to begin to determine who the individuals are in the photo? Do you have a database of past clients? I understand it is so very long ago but just curious how the folks in the photo are related to us.
    Thank you.

    • I wish I could help you identify the people in the photgraph. I can’t do so without some cludes to go on. Often times, the name of those photographed are written on the reverse of the photograph. I can tell you a little about the photographer. Lindner studio which was located in South Chicago, Illinois. Charles W. Lindner is listed in an online compendium of Chicago photographers as operating in that city between 1890 and 1899. Good luck with your research.
