This cabinet card portrait features a very cute baby wearing a long gown. It is likely that this is a christening photograph. This wonderful image was taken by August Rino and it is no small accomplishment. Taking photographs of children during the cabinet card era was quite difficult. Cooperation and good poses did not come easily. Rino pursued his photography career in Chicago between 1858 and 1860. He continued has career in St. Louis between 1860 and 1875. This cabinet card is from his St. Louis studio. To see other images by this photographer, click on the category “Photographer: Rino”.  SOLD

YOUNG BOY ON A TRIKE IN ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI

stlouisbikekidA curly haired young boy with tightly pursed lips poses for his portrait at the carpeted Rino studio in St. Louis, Missouri. The studio was located at 801 Franklin Avenue at the time this photograph was taken. Even though the boy in this image projects a less than desirable expression, this is a wonderful portrait of a turn of the century tricycle. August Rino is listed in “Pioneer Photographers from the Mississippi to the Continental Divide” (2005). Rino was active in Chicago between about 1858 and 1860 and operated in St. Louis between 1860 and 1875.
