PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG WOMAN ADVERTISING “NELSON SEEDS” IN MASON CITY, ILLINOIS

NELSON_0001I surrender. Who the heck is “Nelson”? The young woman in this photograph seems to be obsessed with “Nelson”. She is wearing Nelson’s name on her skirt and it appears on her fan.  Is she a Willie Nelson groupie? A second mystery in this image is the abundance of feathers. There are feathers on the floor, pinned to her blouse and decorating her hat. Take note of the daisy chain that the woman is wearing at and below her collar. This mysterious photograph is by T. H. Eulass whose studio was located in Mason City, Illinois. Mr. Eulass knows who “Nelson” is, but he’s not talking. Perhaps “Nelson” was a political candidate or the name of a local company. Thomas H. Eulass (1841-1903) was an Ohio native. Eulass participated in the America’s civil war as a member of the 146th Ohio Infantry. He entered the unit as a private and mustered out as a corporal. He appears in both the 1880 and 1900 US census as a photographer. He was married to Kate Eulass. He is buried in the Mason City Cemetery. This cabinet card portrait is in good condition (see scans).  The thin scrape on the bottom left corner of the reverse of the card does not cause any fragility or softness to the cabinet card. ADDENDUM: A helpful visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery, has identified this photograph as being an advertisement for the “Nelson Seed Company”. Other theories can be seen in the comment section

STRIKINGLY PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN IN MONTLUCON, FRANCE

pretty woman cdv

pretty woman cdv 1 This cartes de visite features a pretty young woman posing for her portrait at the Heron studio in Montlucon, France. She is well dressed and well coiffed. She appears to be holding back a full smile. Her eyes are bright and engaging. Preliminary research yielded little information about Monsieur Heron. The Cabinet Card Gallery exhibits another photograph by Heron. That image is a photo of a bride and groom. It can be seen by entering the name “Heron” in the search box. Montlucon, the studio’s home, is a town in central France on the Cher River. Adolphe Heron (1865-?) was born in Rotterdam, Netherlands. He got married in Paris (1887) and at that time he was working as a photographer there. He began working in Montlucon in 1893. This cdv photograph is in very good condition (see scans).

TWO PRETTY TEENAGE GIRLS AND AN AKWARD POSE IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

This cabinet card portrait features two pretty teenagers in an awkward pose. Don’t blame them, blame the photographer. The girls are likely sisters, and they are well dressed, well coiffed, and wearing flowers and necklaces. What exactly was the photographer’s goal in assigning this pose. If the was trying to portray the warmth and love between two sisters; he failed. The girls were likely frozen with “photo studio anxiety” as they posed for this image. The photographer of this photograph is Louis A. Kraft (1855-1938). He operated a photography studio in Chicago, Illinois. There were times in his career that he was a solo practitioner and at other times he partnered with other photographers (Kraft & Harris, Abbot & Kraft). This cabinet card is in good condition (see scans).

BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN WITH A FLAIR IN LUNDENBURG, GERMANY (A CLASSIC FASHIONISTA)

This cabinet card features a young woman with a flair for fashion. She is most certainly what we call today, a “fashionista”. She looks absolutely beautiful. Her checkered dress is pretty, and unusual for this era’s photographs. I do not know what she is wearing around her collar. Is it part of her dress, or is it an accessory? The young lady is beautifully posed and has a magnificent smile. The stemmed flower in her right hand is a nice touch. The talented photographer of this image is Franz Stulz. He operated a studio in Lundenberg, Germany. This cabinet card photograph is in very good condition (see scans).

A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN IN A PRINT DRESS AND A CLOCHE HAT

A pretty young woman poses for her portrait in this vintage real photo postcard. The young woman appears to be in her teenage years. She is wearing a very busy print dress and a cloche hat. What is a cloche hat? A cloche hat is a woman’s close-fitting, bell-shaped hat. Printed on the reverse of the postcard are the following words, “Hemetmair’s Wtw. Wels”. Hemetmair is a last name and it is possible that it is the name of the photographer. This postcard portrait appears to be from the 1920’s.
