AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL WITH A MILLION DOLLAR SMILE

This vintage photograph features an adorable Hispanic little girl with a million dollar smile. Her eyes dance with happiness. She is wearing a straw hat and a thin bracelet. This photo measures 5 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and is in very good condition (see scans). I estimate that this image is from the 1960’s.

SNAPPILY DRESSED BOY ON A PORCH

A young boy stands on a porch as he poses for an unknown photographer. He is wearing long shorts and high socks. He also is wearing an interesting hat and a large bow on his collar. Note the detail and the quality of the bannister on the porch steps and the porch. They’re certainly not making bannisters the way they used to. The identity of the young boy, and the location where the cabinet card photograph was taken, is unknown. SOLD

YOU CAN FORCE US TO SIT FOR THIS PHOTOGRAPH……….BUT YOU CAN’T MAKE US SMILE: THREE UNHAPPY SIBLINGS IN WEST BEND, WISCONSIN

Three siblings, wearing their fanciest clothing, pose for their cabinet card portrait at the studio of J. W. Goetz, in West Bend, Wisonsin. These children have had happier days than the day they sat for this photograph. The oldest child appears to be doing her best to be stoic, but the youngest children look absolutely miserable.Their scowls at the  photographer seem to say “let me out of here”. The online “Museum of Wisconsin Art” offers a biographical profile of John W. Goetz (1839-1912). He was born near Tiffin, Ohio and by 1860, he and his family moved to Buckwood, Wisconsin. In 1864 he married Mary Wagner of West Bend. He worked as a carpenter and in 1875 he partnered with Mr Bangs in a West Bend Photographic Studio. By 1887, he owned his own photography business located on Hickory Street in West Bend. He worked as a photographer in West Bend for over thirty years. After his wife died in 1901, he sold his business and moved to Marshfield, Wisconsin where he established a photography studio in nearby Marathon City. He died in 1912. This cabinet card portrait has excellent clarity and is in excellent condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF THE MOST ADORABLE BABY IN MUSCATINE, IOWA

This cabinet card portrait features the most adorable baby ever photographed in Muscatine, Iowa. Thanks to an inscription of the reverse of the photograph, we know the name of this photogenic child. The notation states “Please give this to Cora Freddie(?) Guthrie. Taken when 3 1/2 months old. She is now over a year”. The notation is signed “Evelyn”. The photograph was taken by the Clifford & Son studio in Muscatine, Iowa. The studio was operated by Charles Clifford and his son Frederick. Charles Clifford had a studio in Newton, Iowa in the 1880’s and 1890’s. The Photographic Journal of America (1893) announces that Charles and his son opened a studio in Muscatine. The Photographic Times (1895) makes mention that the father and son had mauufactured a “flash light machine”. The Photo Beacon (1897) notes that the Clifford & Son had won some awards at a photography exhibition. This cabinet card image has phenomenal clarity and is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF AN ADORABLE BROTHER AND SISTER DUO: MEET CELIA AND MANUEL AGENOR

An adorable little boy and his sister pose for this vintage real photo postcard portrait at an unidentified studio. The photograph appears to have been taken outside but I have my doubts. I am pretty certain that I see a backdrop in the background. This image, based on some of it’s companion postcards, is likely from Argentina. The children in this photograph are intensely staring at the photographer. A message on the reverse of the card provides a bit of information about the children. The note is written in Spanish and states the the girl’s name was Celia Agenor and she was six years of age at the time the photo was taken. The boy’s name is either Baron Manuel Agenor or just Manuel Agenor. The Artura stamp box reveals that the postcard is from sometime between 1908 and 1924. This vintage postcard is in good condition (see scans).

TWO WELL DRESSED SIBLINGS AND A MESSAGE IN A LANGUAGE I CAN NOT IDENTIFY

A pair of well dressed young siblings are the subjects of this vintage real photo postcard. These are cute kids. The little girl is wearing a long necklace with large beads and has a small purse on her lap. The boy three piece suit makes him look older than his years. Note his cap; it appears to be leather. There is a message on the reverse of this postcard that is in a language that I am unable to identify. I would appreciate any help with that task, from any Cabinet Card Gallery visitor that may recognize the country of origin of this written language. After doing some research, it appears to me that the language is Russian. I am not particularly confident with that assessment. This postcard is very likely from the 1920’s. The postcard has excellent clarity and is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A FASHIONABLE CURLY HAIRED YOUNG CHILD IN NEW YORK CITY

This photograph of a young child is from the studio of Professor David Ehrlich of New York City. The child is beautifully dressed and is holding a toy in his left hand and standing beside a chair with a toy ball on the seat. A sketch of Prof. Ehrlich and a sketch of his studio can be found on the reverse of the photograph (see scan below). The author of the blog, “Cabinet Card Photographers”, has researched Professor Ehrlich. It was found that Mr. Ehrlich had a photo studio at 160 East 66th Street between 1892 and 1902. In 1902, he appears to have moved his studio to 157 East 75th Street. He made a number of moves after that. He is last listed as a photographer in a 1913 business directory. He then switched professions and became a music teacher. The Professor must have possessed a strong drive to teach. While a photographer, he gave photography lessons to the public. It seems that he truly earned the title of “Professor”. This cabinet card portrait is in very good condition.
