PORTRAIT OF A SWEET YOUNG WOMAN IN AUSTRALIA

This vintage real photo postcard was taken at an unidentified studio and not mass produced. The young woman posing for the photograph is wearing a plain dress, pearls, and earrings. She dressed up for the photo but no one would accuse her of being a fashionista. The woman used the post card to transmit Christmas and New Year’s greetings. The message on the reverse of the card was written in 1933. The stamp box on the verso indicates that the postcard used Kodak of Australia paper. This postcard has excellent clarity and is in excellent condition.

DISORGANIZED SANTA CLAUS AND A PILE OF TOYS IN BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (1880)

Santa Claus poses for this studio photograph by McCormick & Heald of Boston, Massachusetts. The studio was located on the appropriately named, Winter Street (#22). Santa has long whiskers, long hair and a lengthy beard. He is in the midst of a disorganized collection of toys. It appears as if Santa’s  sled came in for a rough landing and spilled out much of its contents. Cabinet Card photographs of Santa are quite unusual. Information printed on the reverse of this photograph reveals that the image was produced for Christmas, 1880. To view other photographs by McCormick, click on the category “Photographer: McCormick”.
