PORTRAIT OF AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL WEARING A GREEN DRESS

The little girl in this vintage real photo postcard is absolutely adorable. The “look” she is giving the photographer is priceless. The child is wearing a pale green dress and is sitting on a carved trunk, or table. She is playing with wooden building blocks and has already used the toy to build a structure. The postcard was printed in England and published by Rotary Photo (London). This beautiful card is part of a series (no. 1684). The postcard is from the very early 1900’s. The postcard is addressed to Middleton, which is located in Greater Manchester, England.  SOLD

The beautiful woman pictured in this Cabinet card is stage actress, Florence Collingbourne. Obtaining significant biographical information about her has been difficult and further research will be done and provided in an addition to this blog. However, information from readers about this stage beauty will be appreciated.  The Cabinet card was produced by the Rotary Photographic Company which also produced many postcards with images of theatrical stars. This Cabinet card was published  in London, England. The second image displayed is a vintage real photo postcard also featuring the beautiful Miss Collingbourne (1880-?). The postcard was published by the Rotary Photo Company. The reverse of the postcard has evidence that it once occupied a photo album.
