HAUNTING PHOTOGRAPH OF NORTH AFRICAN MAN AND HIS DAUGHTER

refugee This photograph of a North African man and his daughter is one of the most moving photos that I have ever seen. This image pulls at my heart strings and won’t let go. I know very little about the story behind this photo. I assume that we are looking at a father and daughter. Each is displaying an expression of grave concern. In fact, they look traumatized. The previous owner of this photograph stated that the photo was taken in North Africa during a time of war. The image is a snapshot and measures about 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″. The photograph is in very good condition (see scans).

PIONEER FEMINIST DRIVING HER FAMILY IN AN EARLY AUTOMOBILE

s-l1600 This vintage real photo postcard features a young woman driving an early automobile. What makes this postcard rather remarkable is that she is driving the car while her husband sits in the passenger seat. She truly was a woman before her time. She didn’t need a man to drive her around. She appears to have been self sufficient and confident enough to operate a vehicle on her own. The couple’s son is enjoying the car ride by straddling the hood of the automobile as it travels down a bumpy dirt road. I don’t know the model or year of the car but I can appreciate some of its features. Note the funky headlights, windshield and the starting crank on the front grill. This postcard was produced by AZO sometime between 1904 and 1918. Addendum: A knowledgeable and helpful cabinet card gallery visitor has informed me that this automobile is a 1910 or a 1911 Maxwell.  (SOLD)

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).
