CLOSE-UP PORTRAIT OF AN ALGERIAN MAN IN HIS CULTURE’S TRADITIONAL CLOTHING

This ethnographic cabinet card features an Algerian man from Bone, Algeria. He is dressed in his culture’s traditional clothing. The preceding demographics are derived from the fact that this photograph was in a collection of images from Bone. The city of Bone is now known as Annaba. It is a port town on the Mediterranean, in northeastern Algeria. It is close to the Tunisian border. Bone was known for its mining. Iron ore was a major export. The city was named Bone while it was under French rule. Algeria received it’s independence in 1962. The man in this photograph has a wonderful smile. I wish I knew more about him. The photographer of this cabinet card is not identified. The photograph is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A FALCONER AND HIS FALCON IN COLONIAL ALGERIA

This vintage real photo postcard features a falconer, in native garb, and his falcon. The art of falconry may date back to the time of Mesopotamia (2000 BC). Falconry involves hunting wild animals using a trained bird of prey. Commonly used birds of prey are Red-tailed and Harris hawks, as well as Peregrine falcons. This postcard was published by Jomone which was a large colonial era photographic studio. The photographer of this image worked for OFALAC (communication office and press agency of the General Government of Algeria). The office was established at the time of the centenary of Algeria in 1930. This postcard is part of a series entitled “Scenes Et Types (no, 54)”. The photograph was taken in “Alger” which is a former colonial French province that existed between 1848 and 1962.

A costumed Vilma Von Mayburg poses for her portrait in the top vintage real photo postcard. The beautiful German stage and silent film actress is known for “Die Erbin des Grafen von Monte Christo (1919)”, Der siebente kub (1918)”, and  “Menschen in Ketten (1919)”. Her film career began in 1916.  This postcard was published by “EPA” which is the Albert Phototype Establishment. The company was located in Algers, Algeria.              The second photo postcard shows a standing Miss Mayburg. She is quite pretty and well dressed. She is adorned with flowers and holding a fan. After I purchased this photograph, I had a nice surprise. I realized that the photograph was taken by one of my favorite photographers, Emilie Bieber. She was quite successful and quite talented. Bieber had two studios in Germany; Berlin and Hamburg. The Hamburg studio operated from 1852 through 1872 when she was joined by her nephew, Leonard Berlin-Bieber, Emilie Bieber died in 1884. .
