A RUSSIAN MOTHER AND HER SON : WHO IS COMFORTING WHO?

This vintage photograph features a mother and her son. The pair are dressed for winter. This image exudes a lot of emotion. It is easy to sense the bond between the boy and his mother. My impression is that the photograph captures the boy comforting his mother., rather than the other way around. Each has an arm around the other, but mom looks to be in a passive role. The photograph was found in Moscow, Russia. An inscription on the reverse of the photo appears to indicate that it was taken in 1954. This photograph measures about 3 1/2 ” x 2 1/4″ and is in very good condition.

YOUNG UKRAINIAN MAN WEARING A LEATHER JACKET AND CAP

 

This cabinet card image is highly unusual. I have seen few photographs from this era where the sitter is wearing a leather jacket. This young man is wearing a leather jacket and a cap. The way he is dressed suggests that he may have been a member of the military or the police. However, he is wearing no insignias or badges. The previous owner of this photograph reported that the image was purchased in the Ukraine. The cabinet card is of Russian origin but I can not confirm it is Ukrainian. If one looks at the reverse of the cabinet card inside the egg shaped oval design, one can see the word “Mockba”. This Russian word means Moscow and it is my hypothesis that the mount was produced there.

KIDS, KIDS, AND MORE KIDS IN IMPERIAL RUSSIA

This cabinet card features ten beautiful young children posed together for what is likely a portrait of an extended family. The children are well dressed for their visit to the photographer. Two of the boys are holding their baby sibling in position for the photograph. Note that the baby on the left is holding a stuffed animal, possibly a teddy bear. The photographer of this image is A. Steiker whose studio was located in Moscow, during the time of Imperial Russia.
