romanians

romanians 2 This vintage real photo postcard presents an interesting ethnological portrait of a Romanian couple dressed in traditional garb. It is notable that this couple was not concerned about public displays of affection. The young man has his right arm wrapped around the woman’s shoulder/back. The young lady’s hand is resting on the gentleman’s shoulder. The pair give an appearance of a proud loving couple. Could this be a wedding portrait? Note the woman’s purse. It has a design that includes someone holding a leash attatched to a dog. An inscription on the reverse of this postcard reveals that the photograph was taken in 1937. The postcard is in very good condition.

ATTRACTIVE WEDDING COUPLE IN PRINCETON, ILLINOIS

This cabinet card photograph appears to be a wedding portrait. Both bride and groom are attractive. The young woman in the photo seems to be very young. She looks like a teenager while the groom seems to be several years older. This photo was taken in 1897 by the Masters and Skolds studio located in Princeton, Illinois. The photographers were partners between 1896 and 1903. The 1900 census identifies Charles T Skolds (1862-?) as one of the partners. The name “Nora” is inscribed on the reverse of the photograph. It is likely that Nora is the name of the bride. This cabinet card is in excellent condition.

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).
