FASHIONISTA BOY : AT THE BEACH : DEYOUNGS’ STUDIO : NEW YORK CITY

A fashionable young boy poses for her portrait at the DeYoungs’ Studio on Broadway in New York City. The faux setting is a beach scene. The boy is wearing a suit accented by a bow tie and boots. His straw hat and picnic basket rest on a large rock beside him. The photographer, Joseph DeYoung (1843-1919), was both well known and highly respected. He had operated his studio from a number of addresses in New York City. He left the 815 Broadway address, where this photograph was taken in about 1890. He was at that location from at least 1884. In 1907 DeYoung’s studio was involved in the apprehension of a noted thief. The studio had a display case outside the store so pedestrians could see samples of their work. The thief was caught jimmying open the case and removing two sports photographs. The police were very interested in the home address given to them by their new arrestee. They were surprised that he lived in a mansion but it made sense when they learned he was a millionaire’s butler. He had worked in that same capacity for other millionaires living in the city. When the police searched his room, they found a cache of personal items belonging to his current and former employers. Years later, a deceased DeYoung made the news because of his bizarre estate planning. When he died, he left five dollars to his wife, five dollars to his son, and one half of his business to his business partner, Matilda Wallace. (SOLD)
