PRETTY FASHIONISTA : FAMOUS PHOTOGRAPHER ANDREW PATERSON : GLASGOW, SCOTLAND

This cabinet card features a pretty young woman beautifully dressed. This fashionista knew how to put together a wardrobe. She is wearing a lovely dark coat with fur accents. She also has her hands in a fur muff. Her accessories include a cameo locket and an umbrella. There is also a white object that can be seen on the top right part of the subject’s coat. It is part of the photo and not a tear or scrape. Is it a handkerchief? A dying flower? I can not identify it. This cabinet card portrait was taken at the Paterson’s Photographic Company in Glasgow, Scotland.  (SOLD)

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.
