YOUNG CRICKET PLAYER HOLDING A CRICKET BAT IN TORONTO, CANADA

This original cabinet card photograph features a boy wearing his cricket uniform and holding a bat. This young athlete is identified on the reverse of the photo as Edwin English. He was photographed by N. Bogart of Toronto, Canada. Most Americans know very little about cricket. Cricket is a “bat and ball” team sport originating in England and played in over 100 countries around the world. Cricket can be traced back to Tudor times in the 16th century. In regard to this photograph, it is interesting to note that the tradition of photographing children in their sport uniforms continues today. Many parents of children participating in sports buy individual and team photographs of their children. Some things don’t change. (SOLD)

ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL RIDES HER TOY AIRPLANE

This vintage photograph features a young girl riding on a toy airplane. The plane is actually a biplane. It looks very realistic. Note the decals on the wings. There are words painted on the fuselage. My guess is that they say “Paris – Rome”. The reverse of this photograph has an inscription in French. The notation indicates that the girl’s name is Raymonde and that the photograph was taken in 1930. Since I could only partially translate the inscription, it is possible that 1930 may actually be the date that the girl was born. This vintage photo measures about 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

TWO HAPPY CHILDREN AND THEIR TOYS IN BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA

This vintage real photo postcard makes me smile. The card pictures two happy children posing for their portrait while holding some fun toys. These kids are ready to play. The younger child is holding a hoop toy while the older child has a ball and racquet. This photograph was taken by a photographer that may be familiar to regular Cabinet Card Gallery visitors. The gallery has a number of photos from the studio of Florencio Bixio. This talented photographer operated a studio in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Bixio specialized in studio portraits, wedding portraits, and photos of entertainers. He also was a correspondent for the magazine “Caras and Caretas”, as well as a producer of photo postcards. Between 1900 and 1930 he opened photography studios in partnership with two other photographers. These studios were called “Bixio and Merlino” and Bixio and Castiglioni”. He was of Italian descent and emigrated to Argentina in 1896. He died in Buenos Aires in 1933. This real photo postcard has excellent clarity and is in very good condition (see scans).
