ADORABLE LITTLE BOY AND AN EARLY WOODEN TRICYCLE

This vintage postcard features a adorable little boy, or possibly a girl, sitting on a wooden tricycle. The photograph was likely taken on the front porch of the child’s home. Note that there are two figures of a child on a trike either drawn on, or part of, the child’s shirt. The  two figures seem to be similar to the stitching on the child’s sleeve cuffs and collar. The AZO stamp box on the reverse of this photo postcard indicates that it was printed between 1910 and 1930. This vintage postcard is in good condition (see scans).

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.

A BOY AND HIS TRICYCLE IN BEAVER DAM, WISCONSIN

Photographer P. Veling & Bro produced this portrait of a boy and his tricycle. Note the clarity of the trike in this image. The child is dressed adorably and is wearing a wonderful hat. This studio photograph was taken in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. The photographer, Peter Veling was born in Germany in 1855. He immigrated to the United States as a baby. He married his wife, Theresa, in 1881. He is listed as a photographer in the 1880, 1900, and 1910 US censuses. However, the 1920 census indicates that Veling had became the postmaster of Beaver Dam.
