PORTRAIT OF A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN AND HER FENCE CLIMBING COCKER SPANIEL

This vintage real photo postcard features a pretty young woman posing with her talented and handsome cocker spaniel. I judge the dog as talented because he is sitting on the railing of a fence. I don’t think that I have ever seen that before. The dog is on a leash which is held by the woman. She is wearing a sporty outfit which includes a baggy blouse, wide belt, a neckerchief tie, earrings, and wide brimmed hat. This photograph was taken by the W. Page studio, which was located in Shoreham-by-Sea, a seaside town and port in West Sussex, England. The photographer, William Page, was born in 1831, in Reading. In 1855. he married Martha Watts. By 1871, he was working as a photographer and in 1878 he moved to Shoreham where he continued to operate a photo studio. The 1881 census indicates that his two daughters assisted him in running the business. His two sons also assisted until 1884, when his son William, let to run his own studio in East Grinstead. The elder William was primarily a portrait photographer but he also took some photographs of sailing ships as well as some of the major buildings in Shoreham. He is also known for some of his photographs of the great blizzard that hit Shoreham in 1881. Page died in 1915. His son Albin continued the business until 1932. There is no evidence that Albin ever published any postcards. This vintage postcard is in good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF AN ADORABLE LITTLE BOY AND HIS ADORABLE CURLY HAIRED DOG IN DETROIT, MICHIGAN

This cabinet card photograph is absolutely precious. The photographer did a fantastic job of posing the child and the dog. The child is wearing a half smile and the dog is flashing a serious and inquisitive stare at the photographer. Is this child a boy or a girl? It is difficult to ascertain oftentimes in vintage young children’s photographs. One confounding factor is that many boys wore dresses till they reached five or six years-old. Sometimes, but not always, the way a child parted their hair, can be a clue to identifying their gender. Boys generally wore their hair parted on the side while girl’s hair was usually parted in the center. This photograph was taken by the Hall and Son studio,  located in Detroit, Michigan. Henry M. Hall was born in New York in 1835. He married Eliza Hall in about 1855. The couple had three daughters and one son. The Detroit directory listed Henry and his son, Roswell (1864-?), as photographers as well as portrait and landscape painters in 1884. The firm employed two photographers, Alexander Campbell (1884) and John Bennett (1885). It is not clear if the photography studio operated beyond 1884-1885. During the 1890’s, Henry created a number of sign painting partnerships. He also had an interest in a cigar manufacturing company in 1898. Henry’s son, Roswell E. Hall was a painter and shipping clerk between 1879 and 1884. He worked as a photographer with his father between 1884 and 1885. He remained in Detroit and held various jobs; crockery store clerk and department manager (1886-1891), manufacturers agent and department store clerk (1892-1898), and foreman in an iron works (1899-1902 as well as in 1910). Roswell married Emma Hall in 1887 or 1888. The couple had four children. This cabinet card portrait is in very good condition (see scans)

2020-04-12_001701 dog baby 1

2020-04-12_001842 dog baby 2This fun real photo postcard features a cute baby riding on a large dog. At first, I thought that this photograph was created via “trick photography” in the developing process. However, after looking further at the photo, I noticed that the baby’s parent was crouched behind the child in a hidden position. The parent is holding the child securely atop the dog. Note the parent’s hands under the baby’s arms. This photo was published by a studio in Margate, England. Margate is in Kent County in the United Kingdom. It is a coastal resort town. This vintage postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

A mother and child pose alongside a small dog in this real photo postcard portrait. Mother and her baby are both smiling. Mom is holding the dog steady with one hand on it’s flank.

This vintage photograph features a most adorable dachshund popping out of a wicker waste basket. I can not guarantee that this cute canine is a dachshund but that is my best guess. The photographer and the location that this photo was taken, are unidentified. The dog also preferred to remain anonymous. This image measures about 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and is in very good condition.

GROUP PORTRAIT OF ARMED SOLDIERS POSING WITH TWO MORTARS AND THEIR MASCOT DOG

ORRUZON

ORRUZON 1

This vintage real photo portrait postcard is a nice piece of military history. I wish I knew more about this group of soldiers and their weapons. The men are armed and look dangerous. Note the two mortars. A soldier in the bottom row is holding a flag. A small dog is sitting in front of the men. He is likely the unit’s mascot. The message on the reverse of the postcard probably reveals some of the story behind this image. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide a translation. However, the writing on the reverse of the postcard informs us that the photograph was taken in 1926, a year that lies between the World War I and World War II. This vintage postcard is in very good condition.
