JUNIOR NEW YORK CITY FIREMAN HOLDING AN AXE

This cabinet card features a young boy dressed up in a fireman’s uniform complete with helmet. He is posing with a serious expression trying hard to play the part of an adult fireman. To make the portrait even more realistic, he is holding a fire axe. This image is another example of a cabinet card portrait that attempts to “adultify” children. The cabinet card gallery includes images of children dressed as sailors, soldiers, and even brides and grooms. Many of  the children’s portraits show them dressed in adult-like glamourous or elegant clothing. It appears that parents at the turn of the century had the same propensity that parents have today to rush their children to adulthood. Unlike today’s children, the children of the cabinet card era really did have to become adults in their later teenage years. Prolonged adolescence was not invented yet. The photographer of this image was J. K. Cole of New York City, New York. To view other photographs by Cole, and to learn more about him, click on the category “Photographer: Cole (New York)”.   (SOLD)
