TWO ADORABLE SISTERS SITTING ON A BENCH IN NERAC, FRANCE (CDV)

This carte de visite photograph features two adorable sisters sitting on a studio bench in Nerac, France. The two girls are wearing identical dresses, both accessorized with lace. The children are also wearing hair bows. Interestingly, one child is wearing the bow on the left side of her head while the second child’s bow is on the right side of her head. I suppose this was the work of the photographer who was intent on creating symmetry in this image. Take note of the ornate carvings on the legs of the bench. This photograph was taken at the Tuja studio. As stated earlier, the studio was located in Nerac, France. Nerac is located in southwestern France. This carte de visite photograph is in excellent condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL HUGGING HER TORTOISE SHELL TABBY CAT

This vintage real photo postcard features an adorable little girl hugging her tortoise shell tabby cat. The child appears entranced by the gorgeous feline. This postcard was published by Alfred Noyer. He was a well known and acclaimed photographer. His Paris studio operated between 1910 and the 1940’s. This postcard is dated in the year, 1920. The card is color tinted and part of a series (no1352). I used an online translation app to learn the meaning of the caption at the bottom of this photo postcard. The translation is “kiss the mistress – he turns a deaf ear: have we, I ask you, such demands“. The quotation puts a spotlight on the strong independent nature of house cats. This real photo postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL AND HER TWO PRECIOUS CATS (PUBLISHED BY FAUVETTE)

This vintage real photo postcard features an adorable little girl. She is carrying two beautiful cats. One is peeking out of a wicker basket. This little girl is quite industrious. She is also transporting a second cat, a cloth bag, and a bouquet of flowers. She must have been so busy remembering what cargo she was taking from home that she forgot to put on her shoes. This postcard was made in France and was published by Fauvette (no.1319). The postcard was most likely published in 1913 as a closely numbered Fauvette card in the Cabinet Card Gallery collection has a 1913 postmark.   ADDENDUM: Further research reveals that the model in this postcard is most likely, Hani Reinwald, sister of popular postcard model, Grete Reinwald.

YOUNG GIRL WITH RINGLETS WEARING INTERESTING ATTIRE (EARLY CDV : 1860’s)

This carte de visite photograph features a lovely little girl wearing unusual attire. I would guess that her dress is indicative of a specific ethnic group. I do not know what ethnicity that might be. The detailed stitching on her dress is pretty. Note the striped accessory (scarf?) on the side of her dress, as well as her feathered headband. Her ringlet curls are adorable. This cdv was taken at the R. A. Lord studio in New York City. He operated his studio in the 1860’s. He photographed civil war soldiers and civil war era citizens during the conflict. A couple of his photographs are in the collection of California’s J. Paul Getty Museum. This vintage image is over 150 years old and is in very good condition (see scans).

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).
