PORTRAIT OF A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN (CARTE DE VISITE)

This carte de visite portrait features a pretty young woman. She is wearing her hair up. Note the collar pin at the bottom of her high collar. I am unsure of who took this photograph. There are two photography studios listed and one of the studios succeeded the other. I believe that this cdv photo was taken by Ad. Baumann and that Baumann’s studio took over the business from Prof. Hanfstaengl. Franz Hanfstaengl (1804-1877) was a lithographer, photographer, printer, and publisher. The photographer of this carte de visite had studios in both Frankfurt and Munich, Germany. This cdv photograph is in very good condition (see scans).

EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL WOMAN FROM DARMSTADT, GERMANY

The woman in this photograph is absolutely beautiful. She is also elegant and stylish. She is wearing a pretty boa and hat. The photographer of this image is Hofmann & Company. The studio was located in Darmstadt, Germany. Darmstadt is in the city of Hesse, which is a little south of  Frankfurt. An inscription on the reverse of the photograph has the subject’s name and the date of the photograph. The name of  this pretty fraulein is illegible but it is clear that the photograph was taken in 1905.

AN OFFICER AND TWO LADIES IN FRANKFURT, PRUSSIA

This cabinet card features a military officer and two women seated at a table. All three individuals appear quite austere. On the table are two small books and a bowl with contents that include a pair of scissors. Perhaps this is a family photograph, but there is likely an interesting story about the lives of the subjects in this photograph. The photographer of this image is Franke & Karcher of Frankfurt. At the time of this portrait, Frankfurt was ruled by Prussia.
