AN ADORABLE CHILD AND A PHOTO BOOK IN ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI

book-boy

This vintage photograph captures a most adorable child sitting on a stool/table, resting one foot on a nearby chair. I am uncertain as to whether the child is a boy or a girl but for the purpose of this entry, I will refer to the child as a boy. From his perch, the child looks toward the camera with very engaging eyes and expression. He is wearing an outfit that is part nautical and part “Little Lord Fauntleroy”. He is holding an open book or magazine. There appear to be copies of photo postcards on the book/magazine pages. This photographic portrait was taken by the Schneidt Studio in St. Louis, Missouri. George Gustav Schneidt (1887-1965) and his son operated the studio until 1965.

ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL STANDING ON A CHAIR IN MACON, MISSOURI

tot

This cabinet card features a most adorable little girl dressed in a long white gown and standing on a chair. This cutie pie is quite expressive. Is she joyful or is she fearful? I opt for joyful. The photographer, Manton M. Patterson, is cited in the St. Louis and Canadian Photographer (1900). A short biography of Mr. Patterson appears in the History of Adair County (1911). Patterson was born in Logan County, Illinois in 1868. At age 6 he moved to Macon County with his family. At age 14 his father died and in order to maintain himself he went to work for a Macon gallery where he learned the photography business. Like many photographers, his work caused him to move from place to place. He operated studios in Missouri (Macon, Memphis, St. Louis, and Kirksville). He also conducted business in Iowa (Iowa City). Patterson was married to Rebecca Ely in 1899.

YOUNG BOY ON A TRIKE IN ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI

stlouisbikekidA curly haired young boy with tightly pursed lips poses for his portrait at the carpeted Rino studio in St. Louis, Missouri. The studio was located at 801 Franklin Avenue at the time this photograph was taken. Even though the boy in this image projects a less than desirable expression, this is a wonderful portrait of a turn of the century tricycle. August Rino is listed in “Pioneer Photographers from the Mississippi to the Continental Divide” (2005). Rino was active in Chicago between about 1858 and 1860 and operated in St. Louis between 1860 and 1875.

MAGGIE ARLINGTON: STAGE ACTRESS KILLED BY DUMB-WAITER

This cabinet card, features an actress with a tragic story. The New York Times (1887) reported a story about Maggie Arlington’s funeral. Arlington was a stage actress. Her funeral was held at her home at 106 East 54th Street in New York City. The article states that her home was full of flower arrangements including a large arrangement from her fiance, Eddie Godschalk. Miss Arlington died from pneumonia which was reported to be secondary from a fall. The fall occurred when she was leaning over a dumb-waiter shaft in her home and slipped and fell sixty five feet. She broke both of her legs as well as one of her arms. She also sustained major bruises. She developed pneumonia shortly thereafter. Arlington was born in 1853 in Lawrence, Massachusetts and was originally named Margaret Ryerson. She began professional acting in St. Louis in 1872. She married the nephew of a United States Navy admiral. Her husband objected to her continuing her acting career so she divorced him. She had one son who was ten years old at the time of her death. Maggie Arlington does not seem to have been a major theatrical star as research yielded little about her stage career. However, her profession and the unusual tragic cause of her death, earned her an obituary story in the New York Times. This cabinet card was photographed by celebrity photographer Napoleon Sarony.

The second girl is holding something very unusual for a child to be displaying, That is, unless she is an aspiring home builder. This girl is proudly brandishing a 1902 catalog from the William G. Frye Company. This business was located in St. Louis, and sold door, sash, blinds and many types of millwork.
