PORTRAIT OF FIVE MEN AND A JEEP ON A DIRT ROAD IN SERBIA

I would love to know the story behind this vintage postcard. Five men are standing by a Willys Jeep or Jeep-like vehicle. The car is on a dirt road. The men are posed in an odd manner. There are four men on one side of the automobile and a single man on the other side of the vehicle. Is the lone man a hired driver? Are the four other gentleman traveling together for business? There are mountains in the background. A cable car type system is in the near background. I wonder what was being transported by the cable cars? There is a small flag above the hood of the jeep. Although the design of the flag is not fully visible, the flag appears very similar to the flags flown by Serbia and some of it’s neighboring countries. The previous owner of this photograph has advised me that this photo was taken in Serbia. An inscription on the reverse of the  photograph lists five names that most likely belong to the five men in the photo. This photograph appears to be from the 1950’s. It is in very good condition (see scans).

CLOSE-UP PHOTOGRAPH OF THE CUTEST LITTLE BOY IN YUGOSLAVIA RIDING A CAROUSEL HORSE

This vintage real photo postcard captures a a very cute child sitting on a carousel type horse. The child seems to be a bit befuddled by the experience of being photographed. He does not appear to be thrilled with the idea of posing for a photograph. On the other hand, the horse seems perfectly happy. Is the child wearing pajamas? The setting of the photograph is a studio in Yugoslavia. The evidence of that identification is the Yugolslavian stamp on the card. The postmark indicates that the picture was taken in 1973. The postmark is from Vrnjacka Banja. On today’s map, the town is located in central Serbia.   SOLD

PRETTY TEENAGE GIRL AND HER ACCORDION

accordion

accordion 1 This vintage photograph features a pretty teenage girl and her accordion. She has bright eyes and a lovely smile. She is casting a shadow on the wall behind her. The shadow enhances the photograph by providing interesting contrast. Hopefully, a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery, will be able to identify the Maker and Model of this musical instrument, and leave an informative comment. I can identify the words “Concerto”, “Melodija”, and possibly “Hohner”, on the instrument, This photo of this lovely musician and her accordion, was found in Serbia. I can not decipher the inscription on the reverse of the photograph. The scallop edged photograph measures about   5 1/4″ x 3 1/4″  and is in very good condition (see scans).

PRETTY STAGE ACTRESS: MISS DOROTHY CHARD (TWO REAL PHOTO POSTCARDS)

actress

POSTCARD 1

chard 1

POSTCARD 2

This vintage real photo postcard features Edwardian theater actress Miss Dorothy Chard. Preliminary research yielded little information about her life and her career. More intensive research is required to uncover biographical information. The Internet Broadway Data Base (IBDB) notes that Miss Chard appeared in eleven Broadway shows from 1926 through 1930. She played in musicals but she primarily appeared in comedies. Among her credits are “Merry-Go-Round” (1927) and “Cinderelative” (1930). The dearth of information about Miss Chard reveals that she certainly was not a leading actress of her time but she certainly was beautiful and well known enough to merit the publishing of a photo postcard by the Rotary Postcard company. This postcard was part of the Rotary Photographic series (no. 4353 A). The photograph of Dorothy Chard appearing on this postcard was taken by the Foulsham & Banfield Studio.The pair were well known celebrity photographers. Frank Foulsham and A. C. Banfield operated a studio from the 1900’s through the 1920’s. The postcard is postmarked 1909 from Edinburg, Scotland. Edinburg is Scotland’s capital city. The content of the message on this postcard mentions “fresh cards” referring to newly released photo postcards. Collecting such cards was a popular hobby during this era. I guess this hobby was a precursor to collecting pokemon. I prefer collecting photo portraits. Call me “old school”.                                                             The second vintage postcard features a portrait of Dorothy Chard from the same series as the top postcard. This Rotary postcard (no. 4353 K) presents a more complete view of the actress. Miss Chard was dressed in different clothing and accessories for the two portraits. She looks very friendly in card 1 but has an arrogant expression in card 2. The message on the reverse of this postcard states “Dearest Lil, Have you been feeling well today. I have. M. has not spoken to me yet. Wish I was going to see you tonight. –?– on saturday night. Have you had your chocolates? Hope you will like the P-C (postcard). I think it is very good. With fondest love. I remain yours forever.  (JM?)  My- Word -” It is interesting that the writers of postcard 1 and 2 both mention the photo postcard that they are sending. It would be interesting to know what “My-Word-” means. Does it mean “I will remain yours forever, you have my word”. Hopefully, a Cabinet Card Gallery visitor will be able to offer an explanation,

PORTRAIT OF TWO INCREDIBLY PRECIOUS SISTERS IN BELGRADE, SERBIA

The sisters seen in this cabinet card image are absolutely precious. They are also adorably attired in matching dresses and hats. The dresses have a bit of nautical style. The photographer of this photo portrait is Amere Kehur (Kenur?), at least that is how I decipher the script printed below the image. Kehur’s gallery was located in Belgrade which is the capital of Serbia.  SOLD

PORTRAIT OF A LOVELY YOUNG SERBIAN COUPLE

zajecan

zajecan-1

This cabinet card portrait features a lovely young Serbian couple. The pair are very well dressed. The young man is wearing a pocket watch and a wedding ring on his left hand. Perhaps this image is a wedding portrait. The young woman is wearing a traditional dress and lots of lace. She is holding something in her right hand that I am guessing is a hat.  The couple looks very young and very innocent. The reverse of the cabinet card has the stamp of Bernhard Wachtl, an Austrian lithographer whose printing firm was located in Vienna, Austria. He designed and printed logos of photographic studios during the cabinet card era. His clients included photo studios located throughout most of the world.
