WEDDING PHOTOGRAPH: GROTON, SOUTH DAKOTA

 

wedding couple

wedding couple 1

This Cabinet photograph introduces us to a bride and groom photographed by H Steinhauer in Groton, South Dakota.  The wedding couple doesn’t look very happy or affectionate on their special day. A little research reveals that the town of Groton was established in 1881 and that South Dakota became a state in 1889.  Therefore the Cabinet card was photographed after 1889. The town of Groton had a population of of 1,356 in the 2000 census. I wonder if the bride and groom have any descendants remaining there. This cabinet card is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A HANDSOME SAILOR AND HIS BRIDE IN SENS, FRANCE

sailor couple

sailor couple 1 This vintage real photo postcard features a handsome wedding couple. The groom is wearing his naval uniform. His hat tells us the name of his ship. Unfortunately, the camera angle only shows the beginning letters of the ship’s name. One possibility is that the ship is named HMS Constance. The Constance was a light cruiser of the Royal Navy that was active in World War I. The ship was launched in 1915. It took part in the Battle of Jutland in 1916. The Constance was decommissioned in 1931 and was in reserve until 1935. The bride in this photo is wearing a pretty dress and a long veil. The photographer of this wedding portrait is Henri Pissot and his studio was located in Sens, France. Sens is a city in the Yonne department in north-central France. To see more photographs by Pissot, place his name in the search box. This real photo postcard has excellent clarity and is in excellent condition (see scans). Addendum: Please see comments section in regard to the sailors country of service and the name of his ship. Thanks to the visitors to the Cabinet Card Gallery that provided the aforementioned information.

ADORABLE PORTRAIT OF A BRIDE AND GROOM AND WEDDING PARTY AT A TOM THUMB WEDDING (1929)

tom thumb

tom thumb 1

This vintage real photo postcard is a spectacular portrait of a bride, groom, and wedding party at a “Tom Thumb” wedding. These faux weddings were similar to adult weddings. Children would dress up in real wedding clothes, take part in a fake humorous wedding ceremony, and attend lavish parties. “Tom Thumb” weddings are named after the celebrated wedding of P. T. Barnum’s dwarf performer, General Tom Thumb. That wedding took place in 1863. Tom Thumb weddings became very popular. They were theoretically, vehicles to teach children about religious values, to model adult behavior, to offer entertainment, and, at least some of them, raised money for charity. The message on this postcard was written in 1929 and is in French. The photograph has excellent clarity and appears to be issued by a private studio. If so, this image is likely one of a kind. The postcard is in good condition (see scans). (SOLD)

LOVELY COUPLE IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

pastry chef 3

pastry chef 4

This cabinet card photograph features a portrait of a lovely and well dressed couple. Perhaps this image is their wedding photograph. They are likely a well-to-do couple, judging by their clothing and grooming. The pair also seem well poised. The woman looks like she is trying to hold back a full smile. This portrait was taken by a photographer in Chicago, Illinois. Unfortunately, although the name of the photographer is listed on the front of the cabinet, I can not decipher the name. Perhaps, the name is “Stein”. Other identification research methods failed to reveal the identity of the mystery photographer. However, we do know that the lensman won many awards for his work.The reverse of the cabinet card lists eleven of these awards which were earned from 1887 to 1893. The photograph once resided in an album, which is apparent by the peeling at the top of the reverse of the card. This cabinet card is in good condition (see scans).

AN ORDINARY COUPLE IN STERLING, NEBRASKA (ALBERT AND BERTHA WUSK MAULIS)

ORDINARY NEB COUPLE_0011

benson 1

An “ordinary” couple poses for their portrait at the Sterling, Nebraska photographic studio of E. T. Benson (1870-1935). The couple are identified on the reverse of the photograph as Albert and Bertha (Wuske) Maulis. Research uncovered a copy of this image and it was referred to as a wedding picture. Albert Moulis (1868-1960) is listed in the 1900 through 1930 US census. The 1900 US census reveals that he was born in Bohemia and immigrated to the US (1888). His occupation was listed as farmer. He is also listed as a farmer on the 1910 census but by 1920 he had become a machinist. A popular genealogy site has an entry that states that Albert’s journey to America started when he stowed away on a ship rather than enter military service in the army of the Austrian Empire. Albert’s wife, Bertha (1878-1937). , was Nebraska born,  but came from parents with Prussian and German heritage. This vintage photograph is in good condition (see scans).  (SOLD)benson 2
