ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL AND HER FANTASTIC PULL TOYS

This vintage real photo postcard features an adorable short haired little girl posing between two pull toy animals. The toy elephant and lamb are larger than most pull toys I have seen in other vintage photographs. Note the girl’s piercing eyes. The history of pull toys is interesting, It is believed that the earliest wooden toys appeared sometime during the Stone Age.Wooden toys were produced during the Middle Ages and were manufactured by industry in the 1800’s, especially in Europe. Steiff was a manufacturer of pull-alongs. The toys were described in advertising as “High Class Riding animals”. In 1880, Margarete Steiff, a German seamstress, founded the stuffed animal company that bears her name. Interestingly, a bout of polio limited her sewing to using just one hand. Her nephew created the first soft bear for his Aunt. When an American wholesaler saw the bear at the Leipzig Toy Fair in 1903, he ordered three thousand of them. By the time of World War I, Steiff had sold millions of these toys in Europe and the United States. Perhaps the toys in this photo postcard were made by Steiff. Producers of early pull toys included Fisher Price and Lego. This photo postcard was produced by the Foto Luz studio, located in Bucharest, Romania. The studio’s name is embossed on the lower right hand corner of this scallop edged postcard. The postcard is from the 1940’s and is in excellent condition.

A CUTE LITTLE GIRL AND HER BIG DOLL IN UTICA, NEW YORK

A precious baby girl, sitting on a chair, poses next to her large doll. The cute little girl has the most darling expression as she looks at the camera. She is wearing a necklace and a hair band. This cabinet card photograph was taken at the Scofield studio in Utica, New York. Charles H. Scofield (1845-1918) was active as a photographer in Utica between 1874 and 1879. A stereoview portrait by Scofield is part of the collection at the J. Paul Getty Museum, in Los Angeles, California. Scofield held a photography patent for an “adjustable camera and box”, according to the Anthony Photographic Bulletin (1886). The 1880 US census reveals that he was married to Fanny Scofield. A photographer named Charles Albert Scofield operated in Utica. He is listed in the 1894 Utica business directory, as well as, other editions. He was the son of Charles H. Scofield. This cabinet card photograph is in good condition. Note that there is slight fading, as well as some spots in the lower portion of the image (see scans).

THE MOST LOVING AND PROTECTIVE SISTER IN MOUNT PLEASANT, PENNSYLVANIA

This is a particularly nice cabinet card photograph for a couple of reasons. First, the photographer has captured the loving and protective emotions of the older sister toward her baby sister. Second, the photographer did an excellent job of photographing the children (dressed in white) against a dark background. The intimacy that the older child feels for the younger, is obvious in this image. Big sister has one arm wrapped around her sibling’s shoulder. She is also holding the baby’s hand. The photographer of this cabinet card portrait is Oliver C. Kough. He operated a studio in Mt. Pleasant, Pennsylvania. Oliver was born in Pennsylvania in 1873. He attended public school until he was twelve years old, whereupon he joined his father working in the mines. He received a number of promotions during the several years he worked the mines. In 1893, he decided that he wanted a different job and he went to Uniontown, Pennsylvania, and received training and worked in a photo studio. At some point in his time at Uniontown, he partnered with a photographer with the last name of Leeper. Kaugh then opened his gallery in Mount Pleasant and operated the business until 1901. His next job move was to return to Uniontown where he took over the studio of McClellan Leonard. Kough was a member of the National, State, and County photographer associations. He was married to Ella Kaugh (1897). The Bulletin of Photography (1912) reveals that Kough had a tragic accident “when attempting to make a flashlight” of a fraternal group at their lodge. As he was about to set off the powder, there was a blinding flash in his face which resulted in him losing his sight in both eyes. How could such a devastating accident happen? Apparently, Kough was using flash powder, a mixture of magnesium powder and potassium chlorate. This technique was introduced by German inventors in 1887. A measured amount of powder would be placed in a pan and ignited by hand, resulting in a brief brilliant flash of light. This explosive event produced both smoke and noise. This method of producing a flash could be life threatening, especially if the powder was damp. This photo is in very good condition (see scans).   (SOLD)
