LITTLE GIRL SITTING ON A WINDOW LEDGE WITH MOM STANDING BEHIND HER “DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME BOYS AND GIRLS!”

This vintage snapshot photograph features a little girl sitting on a window ledge. Her mother is standing behind her squinting out the window. I think the child is in a dangerous position. She could easily fall out of the window, even if her mother is holding her. This photograph was taken in Europe by an amateur photographer. The photographer took a creative, but dangerous, photo. This snapshot measures about 2 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ and is in fair condition. It has no tears or pinholes but it is worn (see scans).

ADORABLE TWIN GIRLS AND THEIR LITTLE SISTER (FEMALE PHOTOGRAPHER) : AKA “LOVELESS IN CARLINVILLE”

This family portrait features adorable identical twin sisters and their younger sibling. The three children share the same face and hairstyle. Like many twins of today, these twins are dressed identically. The twins are holding hands and are standing in front of their sibling who is posed in a prominent position, centered and standing on a chair peering over her sisters shoulders. The photographer who created this photograph was Miss Trumbull of Carlinville, Illinois. The precious children in this photograph are identified on the reverse of the image. Their names are, from left to right, Lila, Georgia, and Lela Loveless. The U.S. census of 1920 sheds some light on the Loveless family. First of all, the family was probably far from loveless.  Cyness and Sarah Loveless had five children. The twins, Lila and Lela, and their little sister, Georgia, had an older brother named Lincoln and a younger brother (Mack) and younger sister (Sadie). It is interesting to note that the Loveless parents named a son Lincoln. The boy was born in 1896, and that despite the fact that three decades had passed since the civil war, the Loveless’s honored their native son assassinated President. After considering the census data, it is likely that this photograph was taken approximately 1904. By 1920, Lincoln Loveless, age 24, had joined his father working as a farmer. Unfortunately, research has not yet uncovered any information about the photographer of this image. Female photographers during this era were not common. Hopefully, a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery will be able to supply biographical information concerning Miss Trumbull.   SOLD

PRETTY BABY IN VIENNA, AUSTRIA

otto otto 1

A very cute little girl poses for her photograph at the studio of Wilhelm Otto in Vienna, Austria. This baby has personality galore. She is sitting on a fur covered chair and wearing a large bow in her hair. Her large eyes are wide open and she seems to be intelligently taking in all that is happening in the room in front of her. This cabinet card photograph is in good condition. Note the weak bottom right corner. The corner of the card is complete but apparently was bent sometime in the past and may be fragile (see scans). The middle of the reverse of the cabinet card has residue from it’s former life in a photograph album.

SUSPICIOUS IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG CHILD)

hartleysThis cabinet card portrait of a young child was produced by Hartley’s Studios. Hartley operated his studio in Chicago, Illinois (309 Madison Street). The studio was the” largest and finest equipped photographic gallery in the world”, and was “alive with the best photographic talent possible to procure”. These accolades are attributable to Hartley. The self promoting statements were printed on the reverse of the photograph. The child in this photograph is not identified, nor is it clear whether the subject is a boy or girl. Most likely the subject is female, based on her clothing, necklace, and hair bow. The child is very cute and has an interesting expression. She looks pensive, possibly even suspicious or anxious. It is interesting to note that she  appears to be wearing a dark belt. It is possible that the belt is part of her dress, but one wonders if the belt is actually a device to hold her in the seat. To view other photographs by Hartley, and to learn more about him, click on cabinet card gallery’s category “Photographer: Hartley”. This cabinet card portrait has excellent clarity and is in excellent condition.

BABES ON A BIKE : TWO VERY YOUNG KIDS SITTING ON A LARGE MOTORCYCLE IN THE UKRAINE

This vintage photograph captures two very young children siting on a large motorcycle. The kids are adorable and the image is quite unique. Don’t you love the expressions on the children’s faces. This photograph originates from the Ukraine. My estimate is that the photo was taken in the early 1960’s. The photograph measures 5″ x 7″ and is in good condition (see scans). Note the small tear in the upper right hand corner of the image as well as the crease in the bottom left hand corner.
