A curly haired young boy with tightly pursed lips poses for his portrait at the carpeted Rino studio in St. Louis, Missouri. The studio was located at 801 Franklin Avenue at the time this photograph was taken. The boy in this image projects a flat expression, However, this is a wonderful portrait of a turn of the century tricycle. August Rino is listed in “Pioneer Photographers from the Mississippi to the Continental Divide” (2005). Rino was active in Chicago between about 1858 and 1860 and operated in St. Louis between 1860 and 1875. Note corner wear (top left corner). Also note the circle in the bottom right hand corner of the revese of the photograph (former home of a price sticker). This vintage cabinet card is in overall Good Conditon.  (SOLD)
