STYLISH MOTHER AND HER TWO CHILDREN IN BERLIN, GERMANY

berlin cab

berlin cab 1A beautifully dressed young woman and two children pose for a family portrait at the studio of C. Gunteritz, in Berlin, Germany. The young woman is likely the mother of the two children, although it is possible that she could be their older sister. The little girl is holding a basket of flowers and her younger brother has a toy rabbit on his lap. The young woman’s dress is made of material that is not commonly seen in cabinet card  photographs. Hopefully, a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery will be able to identify the dress’s material. This cabinet card portrait is in very good condition (see scans).

CLASS PORTRAIT : YOUNG STUDENTS AND THEIR TEACHER IN SCOTTSVILLE, KANSAS (1908)

 

scottsville kids closeup Welcome to Scottsville, Kansas. This real photo vintage postcard features fourteen young students and their teacher posing outside of their school. The class is composed of children all about the same age. That fact, plus the size of the building, reveals that the school is large enough to segregate the classrooms by age. This is obviously no “one room schoolhouse”. The children appear to have worn some of their best clothing for “picture day” at school. A number of boys are wearing sport jackets or cardigan sweaters. All of the boys are wearing hats or caps.The postcard has a postmark from Scottsville and it is dated 1908. The postcard was mailed from Scottsville to Bellingham, Washington and is in very good condition (see scans).

TEENAGE GIRL IN COSTUME : DANCE SCHOOL : UTICA, NEW YORK

dance school  This vintage photograph features a young woman dressed in a dance costume. The previous owner of this image reported that the woman was a dance school student ,and that at the time of this photo, she was at a recital or a recital rehearsal. The student appears to have been in her teenage years. Her costume is unusual and interesting. Note her wide wristbands and striped cap. She may also be wearing a cape although her pose blocks an adequate view of that part of her costume. The subject of this photo is identified by an inscription on the reverse. Her name is Louise J. Howlan (1915-1970). Her father worked for a gas and electric company. At the age of 25, she worked as a stenographer. This photograph was taken by a Utica, New York studio. I am unable to decipher his name which can be found on the lower right hand corner of the image. The photo is from circa 1920’s. The photograph measures about 4 1/8″ x 6 1/4″.   (SOLD)

MISS DOROTHY FROSTICK : POPULAR CHILD ACTRESS, DANCER, AND SINGER

This vintage real photo postcard features English actress, dancer, and singer; Miss Dorothy Frostick. In 1901, Frostick made her debut in the successful musical dream play, “Bluebell in Fairyland”. The play appeared at London’s Vaudeville Theatre. The stars of the show were Seymour Hicks and Ellaline Teriss, a theatrical married couple. Frostick appeared again with the couple in “The Cherry Girl” (1903) and in a revival of Bluebell in 1905. There is a void of information about Miss Frostick until 1912 at which time she joined a pierrot group, “The Quaints”. She appeared with the group until at least 1914. Her final documented London appearance was in a musical and dance production, “The Latest Craze” (1919). The show bombed and closed after twenty-five performances. A portrait of Dorothy Frostick appears in England’s National Portrait Gallery. The photo on this postcard was produced by the International Art Company, which was based in Ipswich, England. This postcard was published by Rotary Photo (active 1897-1916) as part of their Rotary Photographic Series (no. 1617D). This postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL DOING SCHOOLWORK

Screen Shot 2019-09-21 at 11.28.23 AM

The little girl seen in this photograph is absolutely adorable. The bow in her hair adds to her cuteness. She is wearing earrings and a ring. The youngster is bright eyed and appears quite studious. I believe the photograph is best described as a snapshot but I am not entirely certain. Perhaps labeling it a “vintage photograph” would suffice. It measures about 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″. I had hoped that magnifying the calendar in this photo would provide the approximate date it was taken. Unfortunately, my efforts went unrewarded. Despite the uncertainties, this image is special. This photograph is in very good condition (see scans).

FIVE ADORABLE SIBLINGS IN CHALKIDA, GREECE

This vintage real photo postcard features five adorable siblings. It is a bit puzzling that four of the children are wearing winter coats, while the older boy is wearing shorts and an open jacket. The photo was taken at a studio in Chalkida, Greece.  Chalkida is the major town on the island of Euboea. This postcard is in good condition (see scan). Note the small crease that runs from the edge of the card and across the oldest boy’s right coat sleeve.
