AN ADORABLE LITTLE BOY PUSHES A WHEELBARROW WITH HIS CUTE DOG HITCHING A RIDE

This vintage real photo postcard features an adorable little boy giving his dog a wheelbarrow ride. The boy has a serious expression on his face. The child appears to be dressed for cold weather. His dog is very cute and seems to be very comfortable with his circumstances. An inscription on the reverse of the postcard indicates that the card dates back to 1923. This photograph was taken by an unidentified private studio. The name of the studio is embossed on the lower right hand corner of the image but I find it undecipherable. This photo postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

ADORABLE LITTLE BOY AND HIS WHEELBARROW IN JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH)

wheel barrelThis vintage portrait photograph features a nicely dressed little boy posing with his wheelbarrow. The child flashes a wonderful smile as he looks into the camera. The wheelbarrow appears to be made of tin and has a painted horse on it’s side. The photograph was taken by A. N. Camp of Jamestown, New York. The book “Illustrated History of Jamestown, Chautauqua County, NY (1900)” reports that Camp’s studio was located at 207 Main Street and that he began his photography business in 1885. The article also stated that he was born in Erie County, Pennsylvania in 1852. The “Photographic Journal of America (1893)” provides further biographical information. The journal states that Camp was educated as a teacher but began his photography career in Mansfield, Ohio in 1881. He sold the Ohio studio in order to move to Jamestown. Camp must have been active in photographic societies because he is cited in several professional journals. One of his portraits was published in “The Professional and Amateur Photographer (1908).

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.
