PORTRAIT OF A BEAUTIFUL AUSTRIAN ACTRESS IN VIENNA

austrian actress

This cabinet card features a beautiful young actress. I am hypothesizing that she is an actress based on her wardrobe and her great poise. The young lady is wearing a necklace and a jeweled hair band. Note her interesting footwear. She is standing by a faux pile of rocks in the Schuster studio which was located in Vienna, Austria. This cabinet card is not standard sized. It measures about 3 3/4 ” x 8 1/4″.

BELLE GIBBONS: A PRETTY WOMAN IN CINCINNATI, OHIO

A fashionable and attractive woman poses for her portrait at the studio of Schuster, in Cincinnati, Ohio. The reverse of the card has an inscription revealing that the young woman’s name is Belle Noville Gibbons. The photographer’s studio was located at 489 & 491 6th Street West in Cincinnati. The image is beautifully done and the photographer’s use of lighting adds to the beauty of the subject and the photograph. . The photographer is likely William Schuster, who according to photographic journals, was a leader in the photographer associations of the Cincinnati area.
