I’M YOUR CAPTAIN, I’M YOUR CAPTAIN, NAVAL OFFICER IN PORTSMOUTH, GREAT BRITAIN

A naval captain sits for his portrait at the studio of W. V. Amey in Portsmouth, Great Britain. I am uncertain about his rank. Perhaps a visitor to this page can provide helpful information to determine his rank and country of origin. Portsmouth was a significant naval port for centuries, including at the time of this photograph. The photographer advertises that his studio was patronized by the late Majesty Queen Victoria which confirms that the photograph was taken after 1901; the year of her death.

DECORATED NAVY SAILOR AND ONLY FIVE YEARS OLD; OR, PERHAPS A BOY IN COSTUME

cutekidA young boy, wearing what appears to be a naval uniform with a cap and large medals, poses for this cabinet card portrait. Perhaps his father was a sailor. The medal on the left has two crossed rifles. Hopefully a visitor to this site can identify the medals and branch of service. The photographer is Gardner of New York City.
