LARGEST HAIR BOW IN THE HISTORY OF HUMANITY AND THE WOMAN WHO WORE IT

  This vintage real photo postcard is quite unique. It features the portrait of a well dressed lovely couple. The woman is wearing what is probably the largest hair bow ever worn in the history of the world. If she was outside and caught the wind just right, she would probably have the ability to fly. The message on the reverse of the postcard indicates that the couple’s first names are Jeanne and Willy and that they were photographed in 1920 by E. Lorsen in Strasbourg, France.   (SOLD)

FAMILY OF FIVE AND A ROLLING HOOP IN STRASBOURG, FRANCE (CABINET CARD)

strasbourg

A well dressed family of five pose for their portrait at Emile Lorson’s photographic studio in France. The business was located in the town of either Strasbourg or Schlettstadt (now known as Selestat). The father of this family is not pictured. Perhaps he is away or deceased. The family in the photograph includes a mother, three sons, and a daughter. The oldest boy is holding his mother’s arm while she is supporting her daughter’s position on the wall. The youngest boy is holding a toy rolling hoop. Note his high top shoes. An inscription on the reverse of the photograph states ” Uncle Michael’s 3 Boys”. I wonder why there is no mention of the little girl? Possibly, she did not survive to the point in time that the inscription was written. Once again, I ask, “Where is Uncle Michael”? The answers to my questions are lost to history.   SOLD
