HANDSOME YOUNG MAN : HIS UNIFORM AND MEDAL ARE MYSTERIES TO ME

A handsome young man poses for his portrait at an unknown studio. He is in uniform, but what kind of uniform is he wearing? Is he in the military? I don’t think so. There are no patches indicating rank; nor are there any other insignias revealing a military identity. However, there is the matter of the medal that he is wearing on the flap of his shirt pocket. It certainly looks military to me. Then again, he is wearing a bow tie which argues against his uniform being military issued. The clothing that he is wearing seems appropriate for someone who is spending time in a jungle or heavily wooded environment. His soft hat and the accessory that he is wearing above his shoes may be worn in such a setting. The tied wraps around the bottom of his pant’s legs are something that I have seen worn by bicyclists of this era. Its purpose was to keep one’s pant’s legs from becoming entangled in the spokes of the bicycle wheels and causing a nasty spill. Does the gentleman in this photograph use a bicycle in his work? If so, where is the bike? I have lots of questions, and unfortunately, no answers. I need some help on this one. Hopefully a Cabinet Card Gallery visitor will be able to provide more information about this photo. Guesses are welcome too. The AZO stamp box on the reverse of this postcard indicates that the card was published sometime between 1904 and 1918. This vintage photograph has excellent clarity and is in good condition (see scans).

AN ALLURING YOUNG WOMAN BECKONING FROM A LOVESEAT

This vintage provocative real photo postcard features a pretty young woman sitting on a loveseat, and beckoning for the attention of someone outside the range of the camera. She is offering that person a bouquet of dark flowers. The woman is dressed in a risque fashion. Her attire is not exactly everyday wear. One wonders if she is wearing a costume portraying a gypsy, or is perhaps, a flapper. The pictured woman is showing more bare skin than would normally be expected from a woman of this era. Note her unusual and interesting head covering. The AZO stamp box on this postcard reveals that it was produced sometime between 1918 and 1930. The postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

PRETTY LONG HAIRED NUDE WOMAN SITTING ON A CHAIR

A pretty young woman with long hair, poses for a nude portrait at an unidentified studio. She has an engaging smile and alluring eyes. I believe this postcard photograph was taken by the Biederer studio. However, the image is unsigned and my attributing the photo to Biederer is only a hypothesis.

The postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

McMULLIN’S BROTHERS FURNITURE STORE: DELIVERY BY HORSE AND WAGON

This vintage real photo postcard features a father and son on a horse drawn wagon. This is no ordinary wagon. Instead, as the painted sign on the side of the wagon states; it is the delivery wagon for the McMullin Brothers furniture store. The business was located in Anthony, Kansas. Research reveals that one of the McMullin brothers was Joseph Franklin McMullin (1857-1914). He can be found in the US Census of 1910 and his occupation is listed as the proprietor of a furniture store. Ten years earlier, the 1910 US Census reports that Joseph McMullin was working as a farmer, despite the fact that in 1909, the local newspaper, “The Anthony Republican”, ran an ad for McMullin Brothers furniture store. This photo postcard represents a piece of both Anthony and Kansas history. It is also a record of the workings of small business at the beginning of the twentieth century. Note that there is no furniture in the rear of the wagon. It is likely that the wagon and its driver and young assistant, presumably father and son, took the wagon out for the specific purpose of being photographed. The father is wearing nice clothing, not work clothes, which supports the theory that he was not photographed while on the job. This postcard’s AZO stamp box indicates that it dates back to between 1904 and 1918. SOLD
