PORTRAIT OF AN EXQUISITE MOTHER AND HER YOUNG SON

This image is an exceptionally beautiful cabinet card portrait of a pretty mother and her adorable young son. Mom is very well dressed and wearing a necklace, ring, and earrings. She appears confident as she stares at the camera. Her son, standing on a chair, has his arms draped around his mother’s shoulders. He is wearing a nautical type outfit. There is a book on a table in the background. An inscription on the reverse of the photograph indicates that mom’s name is “Jetty” and her son’s name is “Erich”, or possibly, “Emil”. The inscription is difficult to decipher, so the names I provided are just my best guess. The cabinet card photo was taken at the Strauss studio. Strauss had studios in Vienna (Austria), Brunn (Czechoslovakia), and Budapest (Hungary). It is likely that this photo comes from the studio in Brunn. This cabinet card has excellent clarity and is in excellent condition.

PORTRAIT OF A FATHER AND SON IN DULUTH, MINNESOTA (SOMEONE SHOULD CALL THE FASHION POLICE)

A father and son pose for their portrait at the Tornquist gallery in Duluth, Minnesota. At least it is my hypotheses that they are father and son based on their similar facial features. It appears that the men are wearing work clothes. Hopefully the son learned a lot about life from his father. However, I hope the son did not inherit his father’s fashion sense. Dad’s striped pants and plaid shirt clash big-time. Someone should call the fashion police. Dad’s poor fashion judgement should result in a felony. The photographer of this cabinet card portrait is Axel M. Turnquist. Mr Turnquist got around. He was born in Sweden and trained as a photographer in Duluth. He  operated photographic studios in many Minnesota towns including, Eveleth, Hibbing, Aurora, Tower, Virginia, and Duluth. His photography career spanned from the 1880’s through 1923. This cabinet card is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A FAMILY TREE (AKA INITIAL TREE)

This vintage real photo postcard features a family visiting the “Initial Tree”. This family is not content to have a passive sight-seeing visit to the tree. Instead, this experiential family preferred to climb the tree and have their portrait taken. Three members of the family stand at the base of the tree while four others are perched on limbs or branches looking very much like human ornaments. The message on the postcard and the date on the postmark both disclose that the card was written and mailed in 1910. The postcard is from Aunt Dora to her niece, Tilly, in Portland, Oregon. The postmark discloses that the card was mailed from Nahcotta, Washington. The town is located on Willapa Bay, on the eastern coast of the Long Beach Peninsula. Nahcotta was settled in 1890 and named after an Indian chief. This real photo portrait postcard is in very good condition (see scans).  SOLD
