PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG GIRL AND HER DOG IN GORLESTON-ON-SEA, ENGLAND

burrouhgs4 burroughs5

This vintage real photo postcard features a young girl and her dog. The photographer did an excellent job of photographing the dog. Capturing the dog in such a terrific pose couldn’t have been an easy task. I wonder how many photos had to be taken to accomplish the feat. The girl in this photograph has a wide smile and is smartly dressed. This photo portrait was taken at the Pageant House Studio. operated by  F. S. Burroughs. The studio was located in Gorleston-On-Sea. Gorleston is a town in Norfolk, England. The name and address of the studio are embossed in the lower right hand corner of the card. This vintage postcard is in very good condition (see scans). Note the crease on the top left hand corner of the card.

BOY RIDES DONKEY : SMILING EAR TO EAR (RPPC 1900’s OR 1910’s)

This vintage real photo postcard provides a “feel good” impact on it’s viewers. A young well-dressed boy rides a tired looking donkey and he is wearing a smile that extends from ear to ear. He seems to be having the time of his life and his smile is infectious. A nice smile serves people well in life. Marilyn Monroe must have been in agreement about the importance of smiling when she said “A smile is the best makup any girl can wear”. Note that the donkey has a pennant hanging on his forehead. The pennant has “Illinois” printed on it. We can probably posit that this photo was taken in the “Land of Lincoln” (Illinois). This postcard has an “AZO” stamp box indicating that it was produced sometime between 1904 and 1918. The postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

TWO ADORABLE LITTLE GIRLS AND A BOTTLE OF MINERAL OIL ON STEROIDS (1905)

When I first saw this vintage real photo advertising postcard, I thought it was inappropriate. I could not imagine why two little girls would be used to advertise a bottle of liquor. After some research, I realized that all wasn’t what it seemed to be. In fact, these two adorable girls were actually advertising a brand of mineral oil. The name  of this brand was Hunyadi Janos. Janos was a military and political leader of the Hungarian military during the 15th century. He fought the Ottomans. The label on the bottle says “bitterquelle” which is a mineral or spring water. The owner of the company that produced the product was Andreas Saxlehner of Budapest, Hungary. The mineral water was advertised as a laxative. It was claimed that the mineral water was for fighting “the evil consequences of indiscretion in diet”.  The product was also promoted as being effective at relieving hemorrhoids. This postcard has a 1905 postmark from Yonne, France. This vintage postcard is in very good condition (see scans).   SOLD

 

 

 

 

PORTRAIT OF TWO SISTERS : A STUDY IN CONTRAST

This vintage real photo postcard features what is likely two sisters posing for their studio photograph. They offer a study in contrast.

She is holding either a small pail or a purse in her hand. This photo portrait postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

TWO SWEET AND WELL DRESSED YOUNG SISTERS IN DERBY, ENGLAND (CDV)

derby11 derby2

The little girls featured in this cartes de visite are adorable. They also are well dressed in their dresses adorned with frills and bows. Both appear a bit suspicious of the camera or cameraman. This photograph was produced by the Winter studio in Derby, England. Advertising on the reverse of the photograph (see below) indicates that the gallery was “patronized by her majesty the Queen”. Many photographic studios of the time made the claim that they were photographers to royalty. William Walter Winter (1842-1924) established his photo studio in 1867 at 45 Midland Road in Derby. He specifically built the structure to house his studio. Amazingly, the business still exists. Winter trained under photographer Emmanuel Charles. In 1864 he married Sarah Charles, his mentors widow. Winter operated his business until his retirement in 1910. The studio has been in the Derbyshire King family since then. Note the portrait of William Walter Winter (see below). This cdv portrait is in very good condition (see scans).

A LITTLE GIRL AND HER WOODEN DOLL IN PARIS, FRANCE

This vintage photograph features and adorable little girl sitting on a wall and holding her doll for all to see. I know very little about dolls, but, this one seems to be made out of wood. This photo was taken at a studio in Paris, France. The photographer was E. Chapuis. Preliminary research yielded no biographical information about Mr. Chapuis but he appears to have been a prolific photographer based on the number of his photos that are in the hands of collectors. This photograph measures about 2 1/4″ x 3 7/8″ and is in very good condition (see scans).
