GISHA CDV

GISHA CDV 1

This cartes de visite portrait features a smiling barefoot little girl dressed as a geisha. She is holding an Asian style umbrella. Geisha girls are Japanese women who are entertainers. They perform ancient traditions of art, dance, and song. They wear traditional costumes and make-up. There was a time that geisha fashion was popular in the Western world. Both adult women and young children, in the west, would wear this Japanese fashion. It is not uncommon to find cabinet card era (late 19th and early 20th century) photographs of Western women wearing kimonos. This cdv photograph measures about 2 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG FIREMAN IN GLEN’S FALLS, NEW YORK (CARTE DE VISITE)

fireman 11

A uniformed young man poses for his portrait at a Glen’s Falls, New York photography studio. The photographers operating the studio were Conkey (George W.) & Hultz. The gentleman in this photograph appears to be a fireman. His belt buckle indicates that he was in the first company of the department. Note his Napoleonic pose. It is possible that the subject of this cdv photograph is actually a policeman, naval officer, or some other uniformed worker. However, I am fairly confident that he is a fireman. This carte de visite is in very good condition (see scans).  (SOLD)
