PORTRAIT OF A LOVELY YOUNG EUROPEAN COUPLE (1937)

This vintage real photo postcard features a lovely young European couple. The gentleman does not qualify for the label of fashionista. Wearing a striped tie over a plaid sweater is certainly a fashion faux pax by today’s standards. The young woman looks pretty in her print dress.This portrait postcard is dated 1937 and is in good condition (see scans).

ATTRACTIVE COUPLE IN WEST POINT, MISSISSIPPI (NOTE THE WOMAN’S PINCE NEZ)

This vintage photograph features an attractive and well dressed young couple. Perhaps this photo is a wedding picture. The couple are wearing formal clothing and the woman is flashing a ring on the ring finger of her left hand. The gentleman is wearing a wide collar as well as cuff links. The woman has what appears to be a tied loose cord hanging loosely from her waist. I wonder what the purpose is of the cord. Is it just for fashion sake? The woman is also wearing a pince nez, a style of glasses popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The glasses stay on the wearers face by pinching the bridge of their nose. The glasses have no earpieces. An inscription, lightly written in pencil on the reverse of the photograph provides us with some information about the photograph. The photo was taken in 1903 or 1904. The studio was located in West Point, Mississippi. It is situated in the Northeast section of the state. In 1909, President William Taft visited West Point, Mississippi and made some remarks as he stood on the platform of the last train car. This vintage photograph measures about 6″ x *8″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

AN EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE COUPLE AT THE BEACH

This vintage photograph captures an extremely attractive couple at the beach. At least, I think they are at the beach. The pair are wearing bathing suits and are sitting on a blanket which indicates their location may be a beach. However, where is the sand and the water? This photograph measures about 3 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF AN ELDERLY COUPLE DOING SOMETHING UNUSUAL

This vintage photograph features an elderly man and woman doing something unusual. What’s happening in this image that is so unusual, you might ask? The odd thing about this photo is that the old couple appear to be holding hands. This is not commonly seen in photographs of this “no public displays of affection” era.  The man has a wonderful walrus mustache. He looks dressed up in his three piece suit. The woman is bundled up in her outfit as if it is winter. Both are wearing hats. It is difficult to determine if this photograph was taken inside or outside of a photo studio. This photograph measures about 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A SPECTACULAR AND DASHING COUPLE

TUXEDO COUPLE

TUXEDO COUPLE 1This photograph is a portrait of a spectacular and dashing couple. The gentleman is wearing a tuxedo with a white bow tie and a corsage. He has a terrific handlebar mustache. The lady is wearing a dress with feathers, a corsage, and a necklace. This pair certainly make a beautiful couple. An inscription on the reverse of the photograph states “To Papa” and is signed “Wm. M….”. Unfortunately, a former owner of this image trimmed the photograph to fit it into a picture frame and the debris included the signer’s last name. The photographer’s name and location was also lost in the scissor work. The photo measures about 6″ x 4 7/8″.  Overall, this vintage photograph is in good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A MENNONITE COUPLE

This vintage cabinet card photograph features a couple holding hands and posing for a photographer. Their style of clothing leads me to believe that they are Mennonites. The photographer of this photo is W. H. Farley. He operated photographic studios in Crete, Tampico, and Gibson, Illinois during the 1880’s. The cabinet card gallery has several photos by Farley. One of these images also is of a Mennonite couple. To see Farley’s other photos, place his name in the search box.   (SOLD)

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPH: GROTON, SOUTH DAKOTA

 

wedding couple

wedding couple 1

This Cabinet photograph introduces us to a bride and groom photographed by H Steinhauer in Groton, South Dakota.  The wedding couple doesn’t look very happy or affectionate on their special day. A little research reveals that the town of Groton was established in 1881 and that South Dakota became a state in 1889.  Therefore the Cabinet card was photographed after 1889. The town of Groton had a population of of 1,356 in the 2000 census. I wonder if the bride and groom have any descendants remaining there. This cabinet card is in very good condition (see scans).
