TWO LAWMEN POSE FOR THEIR PORTRAIT IN A SMALL TOWN

lawmen? 1

This vintage real photo postcard features two lawmen posing in front of a house or office building. Both men are wearing badges which likely indicates they represent some form of law enforcement. An inscription on the reverse of the card identifies the men as Josiah and Joel “Cade”. I am unsure that I deciphered their last name correctly. The men are nephews of the inscriber. Not quite the Earp brothers, but this is a nice portrait of two brothers serving as serving in small town law enforcement. The AZO stamp box on the reverse of this postcard, indicates that the card was produced sometime between 1904 and 1918. The postcard is in good condition (see scans).

A BOY RIDING A DONKEY: NEITHER ONE LOOKS TOO THRILLED

boy riding donkey

boy riding donkey 1 This vintage real photo postcard features an image of a young boy riding a donkey. The boy is well dressed and is wearing a shirt and tie. He is seated on a saddle, holding the reins, and his feet are in the stirrups. Neither the boy nor the donkey appear happy. The reverse of the postcard identifies the boy as being Ralph W. Ruck and indicates that the boy was eight years old at the time of the photograph. Research reveals that Ralph was born in either 1906 or 1907 in Pennsylvania  (this dates the image to about 1914). The 1930 US census finds Ralph living in Middlesex, New Jersey with his parents and sister. A 1936 business directory lists Ralph as living in Somerville, Jew Jersey with his wife, Bertha S. Ruch. Social security information reports that Ralph died in 1994.. This postcard is addressed to a boy in Jamison City, Pennsylvania. The postcard paper was produced by AZO sometime between 1904 and 1918.  (SOLD)boy riding donkey 2

PIONEER FEMINIST DRIVING HER FAMILY IN AN EARLY AUTOMOBILE

s-l1600 This vintage real photo postcard features a young woman driving an early automobile. What makes this postcard rather remarkable is that she is driving the car while her husband sits in the passenger seat. She truly was a woman before her time. She didn’t need a man to drive her around. She appears to have been self sufficient and confident enough to operate a vehicle on her own. The couple’s son is enjoying the car ride by straddling the hood of the automobile as it travels down a bumpy dirt road. I don’t know the model or year of the car but I can appreciate some of its features. Note the funky headlights, windshield and the starting crank on the front grill. This postcard was produced by AZO sometime between 1904 and 1918. Addendum: A knowledgeable and helpful cabinet card gallery visitor has informed me that this automobile is a 1910 or a 1911 Maxwell.  (SOLD)

PORTRAIT OF AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL AND HER KEWPIE DOLL (1926-1940’s)

clluloid flapper This vintage real photo postcard features an adorable little girl, seated on a bench, and holding a little doll. The doll appears to be a kewpie doll. Kewpie is a brand of doll which was modeled after a comic strip character created by cartoonist Rose O’Neill in 1909. The doll had a similar appearance to cupid. In 1912 the first kewpie doll appeared and it was a bisque doll. Later, the dolls were made of composition (1920’s), celluloid (1930’s and 1940’s), and later plastic kewpies made their appearance. A person knowledgable about dolls, told me that the doll seen in this photograph is made of celluloid. The AZO stamp box on the reverse of this postcard indicates that the photograph was taken sometime between 1926 and the 1940’s. This photo postcard is in excellent condition (see scans).   (SOLD)
