This 1908 real photo postcard captures a well dressed couple posing by “Mushroom Rock” which is located in the “Garden of the Gods” in the state of Colorado. The site is specifically situated in Colorado Springs. Garden of the Gods is a public park and was named a National Natural Landmark in 1971. Glaciers and erosion left the land with incredible rock formations. The park was named by two surveyors in 1859. Multiple Native American nations had involvement with the area. In addition to “Mushroom Rock”, tourists have made “Balanced Rock” a popular visitor site. A photograph of “Balanced Rock” can be found elsewhere in the Cabinet Card Gallery (use the search box to find it). The stamp box indicates the card was published between 1904 and 1918, The 1908 date written on the reverse of the postcard fall well within the range of those years.   (SOLD)

PORTRAIT OF A FASHIONABLE COUPLE POSING BY NIAGARA FALLS (1887)

This cabinet card photograph is both interesting an unusual. The photo features a well dressed couple sitting at the edge of Niagara Falls. Af first, I thought that they were actually posing at a photographers studio with a excellent photo backdrop. I have since questioned my hypotheses. The pair are sitting on short chairs atop some rocks at the edge of the Niagara River. The gentleman’s shoes appear to be in very shallow water. The appearance of the waters edge and the realism of the background, makes me think they are actually being photographed outside and at the water’s edge. The reverse of the cabinet card has an inscription revealing that the couple’s names are Joseph and Angelica (Angeline?) Baker and that the photograph was taken in either 1887 or 1888. The photographer is unidentified. This cabinet card is in very 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).
