PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG FRENCH WOMAN AND A SINGLE FLOWER

This vintage real photo postcard features a young woman holding a single stem and flower. She is wearing a necklace and pendant. She is dressed in a pretty dress with an abundance of buttons. Note the checkered pattern which appears on her blouse and midway down her skirt. Subtle, but nice. She is holding onto an interesting chair. The message on the reverse of the postcard seems to be introducing the woman as “Annie Marie Auge”. I am unsure if I deciphered her last name correctly. The message also reveals that the woman is twenty-two years old. This postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN IN A TOWN CALLED WINDERMERE

A young woman poses for her portrait at the Herbert studio in a town called Windermere. Where is Windermere. Thats a tough question. There are towns named Windermere in the United States, Australia, England, Canada, and the Bahamas. I am going to rule out the United States as being the home of the Herbert studio because of the regal type logo. The logo is more relevant to England or to a former or present English colony than to the United States This cabinet card photograph is in fair condition. There is “white spotting” near the subjects mouth and nose. The flaw can be seen with the naked eye and is very evident under magnification.  (see scans) The photo is priced accordingly.

TWO PRETTY WOMAN WEARING KIMONOS : A CLOSE-UP VIEW

This vintage real photo postcard features two very pretty young women wearing kimono type dresses or robes. The fabric patterns are beautiful. Occasionally, I encounter cdv’s, cabinet cards, and postcards featuring women wearing kimonos. These early photographs document that kimono popularity in the western world was evident as early as the 1880’s. The postcard was published by “NPG” (Neue Photographische Gesellschaft) as part of a series (no. 208/4). The company was a leading bromide photo printing company for many years. A. G. Steglitz, is also noted as the publisher and this photo was published circa 1905 in Berlin, Germany. Note the initial “F. E. D.” at the bottom of the image. The initials stand for Friedrich Eyfried, the printer of this card. The company was located in Dusseldorf, Germany. This postcard is in good condition. Note the slight discoloration in and near the bottom left hand corner of the card

PORTRAIT OF FLORENCE BOYD IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (MAY HAVE SLEPT WITH THE PHOTOGRAPHER)

boyd

boyd 1

Florence Boyd posed for this cabinet card portrait in Chicago, Illinois. She is identified, in pencil, on the reverse of the photograph. The photographer is listed simply as “Boyd”. Perhaps, Florence, is married to the photographer. It is also possible that the pair may be related in some other fashion. A Samuel Boyd was a photographer in Chicago between 1887 and 1893. Earlier, he operated a studio in Cleveland, Ohio (1897 and 1900). All attempts to find further information about Samuel and Florence Boyd have been fruitless. Therefore, there is no confirmation that Florence Boyd actually slept with the photographer after the portrait. This cabinet card photograph is in very good condition.

PRETTY WOMAN IN GRAND RAPIDS MICHIGAN (1890)

GRAND RAPIDS GRAND RAPIDS 1This cabinet card features a portrait of an attractive young lady. She is posed with her  back toward the camera, a pose which offers a profile view. The photographer of this image is Samuel Sharpsteen of Grand Rapids, Michigan and the photograph was taken in 1890. The previous owner of this cabinet card stated that Sharpsteen was of the Jewish faith, but that is not factually correct. There is a tendency for owners of cabinet cards to see a name that “sounds Jewish” and assume that the bearer of that name, must be Jewish. This kind of logic results in many incorrect identifications of Jewish photographers. It so happens, that Mr. Sharpsteen was of the Methodist faith. Samuel Sharpsteen was born in 1850 near Battle Creek, Michigan. His parents were native New Yorkers who were among the early settlers of Michigan. He was educated in Battle Creek’s public schools and at age 20 left home to apprentice in photography. He then went of Owosso, Michigan, where he and his older brother opened a gallery. After six months, his brother left the partnership; and Sharpsteen stayed in Owosso until 1882. He also married his wife there. His wife’s name was Nattie Tuttle, and she was from Cleveland, Ohio. His next location was Ionia, Michigan, where he stayed 8 years. An 18 month stint in Detroit was followed by his move to Grand Rapids. His gallery was in Grand Rapids from 1888 until , at least, 1903. His studio moved around a lot. Research located nine different Grand Rapids locations over the years that he was there. In addition, he had a partner in 1890 and their studio was known as Sharpsteen & Andrews. The Bulletin of Photography (1916) announced Sharpsteen’s death. He died in Grand Rapids at age 71. This cabinet card photograph is in very good condition (see scans).
