STYLISH MOTHER AND HER TWO CHILDREN IN BERLIN, GERMANY

berlin cab

berlin cab 1A beautifully dressed young woman and two children pose for a family portrait at the studio of C. Gunteritz, in Berlin, Germany. The young woman is likely the mother of the two children, although it is possible that she could be their older sister. The little girl is holding a basket of flowers and her younger brother has a toy rabbit on his lap. The young woman’s dress is made of material that is not commonly seen in cabinet card  photographs. Hopefully, a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery will be able to identify the dress’s material. This cabinet card portrait is in very good condition (see scans).

RUSSIAN FAMILY PORTRAIT : PHOTOGRAPHER KOZLOV : TBILISI, GEORGIA

russian family portrait

russian family portrait 1

russian family portrait 2

russian family portrait 3

This photograph appears to be a family portrait judging by the family resemblance seen among the subjects. There is something very special about this image. Each of the four subjects have a very striking appearance. The young woman, furthest on the right side of the image, is especially beautiful. She has piercing eyes and seems to have troubling thoughts. This photograph has an abundance of personality. I am uncertain about where the photograph originates from. Reading the name of the photographer which is embossed on the bottom right hand corner of the mat, suggests that this is a Russian photograph. However, I have a major deficit in recognizing foreign languages, and this image could be from one of many other places in eastern Europe. This vintage photograph has soft corners. The photo measures about 7 1/2 x 5 7/8″ is in overall good condition (see scans).

ADDENDUM: I have received feedback from a few readers of Russian about this photograph. There appears to be agreement that the embossed logo advertising the photographer’s studio reveals that the photograph was taken in the city of Tiflis, which became Tbilisi (the capital city of then nation of Georgia). There is also consensus that the photographers name is P. Kosloff or P. A. Kozlov.

PORTRAIT OF A SERIOUS FAMILY IN SUTTON, NEBRASKA

This vintage photograph captures a very serious family. They are perfectly coiffed and well dressed. It is interesting to note the strong resemblance of the older son to his father. This photograph was taken in Sutton, Nebraska by the Soderberg studio. Sutton is located in south central Nebraska. Pont Sonderberg, the photographer, is listed by the Sutton Historical Society as one of the town’s early photographers. Langdon Road, a historical directory of photographers, asserts that Soderberg operated a studio in Sutton between 1890 and 1905. In addition, the directory states that he had previously been in business during the 1880’s as Smith & Soderberg in Marengo, Iowa. The image part of this photo has a couple of small marks and the photo has some edge wear. Overall, this photograph is in good condition (see scans)

FATHER AND YOUNG CHILD IN PIPESTONE, MINNESOTA

PIPESTONE 4 PIPESTONE 5A father and his child pose in their winter clothing for photographer J. P. Benjamin in Pipestone, Minnesota. Both are wearing outer coats and snow hats. No biographical information could be found concerning the photographer of this cabinet card other than he was active in Minnesota in the 1880’s.  Pipestone is located in southwest Minnesota. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow mentioned the beautiful stone area around Pipestone in one of his poems (Hiawatha). The town was established by two settlers who wanted to visit the site mentioned in the poem. A pipestone quarry is located about a mile north of the town and it was named a National Monument in 1937. This cabinet card has a very slight bow and is in very good condition (see scans).

NON NUCLEAR FAMILY AND A VERY CUTE LITTLE GIRL

This vintage photograph appears to be a non nuclear family portrait. Perhaps the three women in the photo are sisters and the little girl is the daughter of the seated woman. The four subjects of this photograph share a family resemblance. The little girl looks sweet and adorable. Note the checkered dress and her hair bow. It’s interesting that the three woman are wearing coats while the child is wearing no coat. Instead, she is wering a short dress, with short sleeves. What’s up with that? This vintage photo is in good condition (see scans).

A MOTHER AND HER TWO CHILDREN POSE IN FRONT OF A HOUSE AND ANTIQUE AUTOMOBILES

family 3 snapshot 3

family 3 snapshot 4 This vintage snapshot features a mother and her two young children posing in the front yard of a house. Note that mom is wearing a pair of glasses and that the boy is barefoot. The threesome are plainly dressed. The little boy looks like he is a “rough and tumble” kind of kid. Behind the family are two old automobiles and what appears to be a shed, or barn. Further behind the family, I believe there is a man bending down as if to pick up something up off the grass. This vintage photograph measures about 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and is in very good condition.
