A PROUD MOTHER POSES WITH HER INFANT NESTLED SNUGLY IN A PERAMBULATOR

This vintage real photo postcard features a pretty mother posing with her infant child lying comfortably in a vintage perambulator (baby carriage). The carriage is large and looks very secure. Imagine a parent trying to fit one of these “monsters” into the back of their automobile. I think it’s a safe bet that this perambulator did not fold smaller for easy transport. Mom looks very proud and very happy as she stands behind her baby. She is bundled up for winter weather. Note her leather gloves and fur scarf. The baby appears to be bundled up warmly for the venture outdoors. The child has a “nook” in his/her mouth. This photo is from a studio; it is not mass produced. This photo postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

A YOUNG WINTERIZED ETHNIC WOMAN AND HER GIANT MUFF

This vintage real photo postcard features a young woman posing in her winter jacket and her fur stole. Her winterized clothing also includes a cute hat and a giant muff. The fur muff will certainly keep her hands warm. In fact, these muffs are so large that they could probably keep three of her friends hands warm too. The woman in this photo, in my opinion, appears to be black or mulatto. This postcard was photographed by the USA studios which was located in London and the Provinces. USA Studios  was a firm established in England during the Edwardian period. It was established in around 1907. The firms focus was portrait photography. The company was also known as the American Photographic Company. The firm was started by either photographer John Harry Woolfe (1880-1942) or by his parents, Henry Wolfe (1852-1927)  and Mrs Fanny Wolfe (1854-?). John Harry Wolfe”s younger brother, William Swift Woolfe (1893-?), also became a photographer. John Harry became a photographer in the early 1900’s and bought an established London studio in 1907. The studios were very successful during World War I. The studios were all managed by Wolfe family members until World War II. John Harry’s mother, Mrs Fanny Woolfe, was listed as the proprietor of some of the USA studios. A list of the company’s studios indicates that there were at different times, fourteen studios in London and it’s nearby towns. These studios operated between 1907 and 1919. There were thirteen studios in the provinces and they were in operation cumulatively between 1907 and 1969. This vintage postcard is in very good condition.

ON THE BOULEVARD: A HANDSOME FATHER AND HIS TWO ADORABLE KIDS ON A WALK (1966)

This snap shot photograph tells a story. It may go something like this. It is a cool winter day in France. Its 1966. A handsome father puts on his winter coat and scarf, bundles up his two adorable children, and the family goes for an enjoyable brisk walk down the boulevard. They are not alone. A number of pedestrians are occupying the sidewalk. The man and his children are well dressed and appear fairly affluent. An inscription, written in French, can be found on the reverse of the photo. Perhaps a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery will be able to translate the inscription for the rest of us. The photograph measures about 2 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

HOW NOT TO DRESS FOR SLEDDING FUN IN BELGIUM

 

pcab sleddingpcab sledding 1This photograph captures three couples gathered around a “tricked out” sled on a winter day. There is snow on the ground and the woman are wearing weather appropriate footwear. Interestingly, only three of the subjects are paying attention to the camera. It is also notable that the individuals in this image are not dressed for frolicking in the snow. My guess is that they may have been out walking and happened upon the sled. One of them may have thought the sled presented them with a terrific  photo opportunity. This photograph, according to an inscription on the reverse of the image, was taken in Spa, Belgium. The photograph was shot at the Chalet de Geronstere in 1933. Spa is a town in the Province of Liege, Belgium. It is situated in a valley in the Ardennes mountains. This vintage photograph measures about 5″ x 5 1/4″  and is in very good condition.
