A PHOTOGENIC FAMILY POSES FOR THEIR PORTRAIT (1917 REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

beautiful-family

This vintage real photo postcard captures a very photogenic family posing at a photographic studio in 1918. The photographer must have loved photographing this crew. The mother is quite pretty and she stares at the camera with icy but engaging eyes. The oldest of the siblings is wearing nautical clothing and is posed in a manner in which he seems to be protective of his family. By the way, where is dad? Mom is wearing a wedding band but father is missing from the photograph. The younger two children are adorable and definitely are sticking close to mom. This family could be doing commercials on television if there was such a thing in 1918. This scalloped edged postcard is unmailed.

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM. MERRILY, MERRILY, MERRILY, MERRILY, LIFE IS BUT A DREAM (ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE TWO BEAUTIFUL WOMEN DOING THE ROWING)

ONTHERIVER_0006This cabinet card photograph features a fine gentleman wearing a ship captains cap and sitting between two beautiful finely dressed young women on a paddle boat. The women are holding the oars while the man rests on a blanket wrapped bench. I suppose this image has comical undertones. The boat on the lake looks like a real outdoor scene but it is most likely all taking place in a terrific well accessorized studio. The photographer of this unique image is Herrmann Witt and his studio was located in Lubbenau, Germany.
