PORTRAIT OF TWO AFFECTIONATE YOUNG GIRLS AT THE BEACH

 

TWO GIRLS BEACH

TWO GIRLS BEACH 1 Two young girls pose for a vintage snapshot photograph as they sit on the sand at the beach. One girl has her arm affectionately around the shoulder of the second girl. The recipient of the affection is displaying a sour expression. Are the girls sisters? Could they be close friends? The answer is lost to history. The girls names are written on the reverse of the photo. I can only decipher one of the names. It is “Ingrid”. A stamp on the reverse of the snapshot indicates that the photograph was developed in Dresden, Germany. Dresden is the second largest city in Saxony. It is situated on the banks of the River Elbe. It is near the border of the Czech Republic. There are beaches along the Elbe and perhaps this image captures one of them. This photograph is in good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A UNIFORMED MILITARY OFFICER IN FREIBERG, GERMANY

dark soldier

dark soldier 1 This carte de visite photograph features a German soldier. I believe that he is an officer  in his dress uniform. Note the white gloves that he is holding and his sidearm. I bet that his sheathed knife is a frightening weapon. He is wearing an awesome hat decorated with feathers. This photograph was taken circa the late nineteenth century. The photographer was Max Seifert. He operated a studio in Freiberg, Germany. Freiberg is a town located in the the Free State of Saxony, Germany. This cdv portrait is in very good condition (see scans).

WOODSMAN IN CLAUSTHAL, GERMANY

This occupational cabinet card features what appears to be a Woodsman and his axe. He is holding a metal tool in his left hand. Hopefully, a visitor to this site can identify the name and purpose of this particular tool. The mysterious object actually looks like an animal trap. Note the ladder in the background and the cut wood in front of him. He appears to be sitting on an overturned wheelbarrow. The photographer of this image is Friedrich Zirkler, of Clausthal, Germany. Clausthal is a town in Lower Saxony in the Harz Mountains. The area was known for its mining activity at the time of the photograph.
