ATTRACTIVE WOMAN WITH A TALL FANCY HAT AND A SCARF IN PITTSFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS

An attractive woman with a tall fancy hat and a scarf poses for her portrait at the Clark studio in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. The photographer of this image is Forester Clark. He was cited in the Photographic Times (1988) because his eight year-old daughter Eva wrote a letter to then President Grover Cleveland which included six winter and six summer views of Pittsfield street scenes. She received a reply from the President with the salutation of “My Dear Young Friend”,  and the letter went on to say, among other things, that he found the photographs very interesting. Clark is also mentioned in the Photographic Journal of America (1893) for announcing that he was leaving Pittsfield (he lived there 21 years) and moving to Montpelier, Vermont to become treasurer of the Excelsior Granite Works. The article reported that Clark had taken 31,000 negatives while in Pittsfield. Clark was a veteran of the civil war. He enlisted in 1861 and was discharged in 1862 with the rank of Private. He was a member of the 5th Wisconsin Infantry. The 1880 US census reveals that Clark was born in Vermont in 1836. He married his wife, Emma, in 1862. He had four children aged one through thirteen. The 1900 census found Clark living in the Bronx, New York with his wife and two of his children. He was employed as a granite salesman. The 1910 census indicates that Clark was living in Cheshire, Massachusetts with his wife and that at 73 years-old, he was working once again as a photographer. Note the foxing that can be seen at the bottom quarter of the front of the card. Overall, this cabinet card is in good condition (see scans).

THREE EDWARDIAN WOMEN : READING : SEWING : ARTISTIC POSE : RPPC (1913)

This vintage real photo postcard features a view of domestic and family life in the 1913 United States. I hypothesize that the women in this photograph are a mother and her two daughters. The mom and one of her daughters is sewing, while the second daughter is reading a book. Note the antique bench that the reading daughter is sitting on. This vintage postcard’s CYKO stamp box is consistent with the 1913 notation written on the card. The original owner of this postcard identified two women in the portrait, but not herself. The id’d women are Dagmar Miller and Marie Petersen. The location is noted as Askov, Minnesota. The town is located on the middle of the eastern border of the state. Askov was settled primarily by Danish immigrants. Interestingly, the name “Dagmar” is of Scandanavian origin. The 2010 census identified 364 residents of Askov. This vintage postcard has some cornerwear and is in overall good condition (see scans).

BED RIDDEN ILL WOMAN : OUTSIDE : ACCOMPANIED BY NINE FRIENDS : RPPC

This unusual vintage real photo postcard features a woman lying in her sickbed. The bed is located outside and she is surrounded by nine women. Most of these women look pretty solemn. Is this a farewell photograph? Perhaps the woman is terminally ill and this image is meant to be a memorial keepsake for her friends. There is a remote possibility that the woman in the bed has already passed. Whatever the purpose of this photograph, it is a very uncommon photo. This photo postcard is in good condition (see scans).
