CLOSE-UP PORTRAIT OF TWO EXPRESSIVE WOMEN WITH CONTRASTING EMOTIONS

This vintage photograph features a close-up portrait of two women. My opinion is that the two ladies are mother and daughter. An interesting aspect of this photo is that the image presents contrasting emotions. The mother appears intensely serious. She is absolutely not relaxed. The daughter presents a sweet smile and a happy mood. She appears relaxed and well poised in front of the camera. This photograph measures about 5 1/2″ x 3 5/8″ and is in excellent condition (see scans).

PROFILE PORTRAIT OF A PROPER PRETTY WOMAN IN LOGANSPORT, INDIANA

This post cabinet card era portrait features a profile view of a pretty woman. She looks quite proper in her fashionable clothing and with her hair gathered atop her head. She is wearing flowers as well as a lace-like necklace hanging down the front of her dress. I can’t decide it’s purpose but perhaps it is to hold a pocket watch. In fact, I believe I may see a timepiece peeking out from the top of her skirt. This image comes from the A. N. Donaldson studio in Logansport, Indiana. He did a terrific job with the soft backlighting seen in this photograph. Research revealed some biographical information about the photographer Albert Newton Donaldson (1841-1906). He settled in Logansport in 1867. Earlier, he had participated in the civil war. In 1861 he entered the service as a private and after some time left the service as a corporal. He served in Indiana’s 10th Infantry (Company H). One source reports that Donaldson deserted from his unit on 6/15/1862 at Corinth, Mississippi. A second source never mentions the desertion. The 1880 US census revealed that he was married in 1865 to Susan E Donaldson. The 1880 census, as well as the 1900 census, listed his occupation as being a photographer. This vintage photograph is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A WOMAN WITH A BEAUTIFUL SMILE

It is reported that actress, Marilyn Monroe, once stated that “A smile is the best makeup any girl can wear.”. The pretty woman seen in this vintage photograph must subscribe to Monroe’s philosophy. The bright eyed woman pictured in this image is wearing a fur collared coat, a ring, and a wide bracelet. Her hair is styled accentuating her lovely curls. This photograph measures about 3 1/2″ x 5″ and is in very good condition. The photo is a former resident of an album (see reverse of image) and likely dates back to the 1940’s.
