A GENTLEMAN ADMIRES HIS HORSE IN LISBON, OHIO

This vintage real photo postcard features a well dressed young man holding the reins of a horse in the middle of a Lisbon, Ohio dirt road. The gentleman is wearing some sort of accessory covering his wrist below his elbow. The arm guard appears to be made out of leather. I do not know the purpose of the accessory. My guess is that it keeps his jacket sleeves in place while he is interacting with the horse. Perhaps an equine-wise visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery will leave a comment explaining the arm guard's purpose. The horse in this image is beautiful and the man is more of a "dandy" than a "cowboy". The photograph was taken in 1912 and that date is stamped on the image. Lisbon is located near the eastern border of Ohio in the central portion of the state. The town was named after Portugal's capital. It is the location of the first Ohio newspaper. It was the northern most western town involved in military action during America's civil war.

PORTRAIT OF A LITTLE GIRL AND HER THREE BISQUE DOLLS IN BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS

This cabinet card portrait features a sweet little girl posing as she sits of an animal skin rug with her three bisque dolls. Interestingly, the dolls have similar faces but are three different sizes. The little girl has ribbons in her curly hair and flashes a wry grin at the camera. The child's first name appears to be "Carol" as that is the name written on the cabinet card below the image. The photograph was taken by the Cunningham Studio in Boston, Massachusetts. Edward L. Cunningham appears in the 1900 US census. The data indicates that he was born in 1864 in the state of Maine. He married Ella B. Cunningham in 1885. The couple had at least one child, Edward L Cunningham born in 1889. At the time of the census the Cunningham family was living in Boston and Edward Sr. was working as a photographer. A number of business directories from the Boston area list the Cunningham studio. The directories were issued between 1883 and 1905. This cabinet card portrait is especially nice as it offers a close up view of both little Carol, and her collection of dolls.

Ethel Barrymore (1879-1959) was an outstanding American actress and a member of the famous theatrical Barrymore family. She was born Ethel Mae Blythe in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her parents were actors and she was the sister of John and Lionel Barrymore.  She was the great aunt of modern day actress Drew Barrymore.

Ethel Barrymore was considered by many to be the greatest actress of her generation. She was a major Broadway performer and first appeared there in 1895. She had roles in A Dolls House by Ibsen (1905).  She was a strong supporter of the Actors' Equity Association and played a major role in the 1919 strike. She played in Somerset Maugham's comedy, The Constant Wife (1926). She also starred in motion pictures beginning her film career in 1914.  Notable films included None but the Lonely Heart (1944) and The Spiral Staircase (1946). Around 1900, Winston Churchill proposed marriage to Barrymore but she refused. She later married Russell Griswold Colt in 1909 and had three children. She died of cardiovascular disease in 1959 at her home in California. The Ethel Barrymore Theatre in New York City is named in her honor.

The top cabinet card portrait of Ethel Barrymore was photographed by Phillips Photographers of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. To view other photographs by Phillips, click on the category "Photographer: Phillips". The second cabinet card image of the actress was produced by Sarony, the famous celebrity photographer who's studio was located in New York City. To see other Sarony photographs, click on the category "Photographer: Sarony".

The third portrait of Miss Barrymore appears on a postcard published by the Rotograph Company who operated in  New York City and Germany. This postcard portrait was taken by famed Chicago photographer William Morrison. He is well known for his excellent portraits of theatrical stars. He produced both real photo postcards and cabinet cards. This postcard is number HB/1422 of the "Rotograph Series". The image on this postcard is color tinted. This postcard has been mailed and postmarked (1907). The reverse of this postcard can be seen below.To view other photographs by Morrison, click on the category "Photographer: Morrison".

The fourth portrait of Ethel Barrymore is an uncommon one. The image provides a lovely profile view of this legendary actress. If you search for this exact postcard online, you likely won't find it. This postcard was published by E. Frey & Company who operated in  New York City . Research reveals that postcards displaying the printed name of  "E. Frey" were actually published by the Souvenir Post Card Company which existed between 1905 and 1914. It was located at 268 Canal Street in New York City. The company was purchased by Valentine & Sons and the combined company became Valentine – Souvenir. This postcard was printed in Germany and is in good condition (see scan).

The fifth photograph of Miss Barrymore was published by the Rotograph Company. This postcard portrait was taken by famed Chicago celebrity photographer William Morrison.This postcard is number B 662 of the "Rotograph Series". The image has excellent clarity.

The sixth image is a vintage real photo postcard portrait of Ethel Barrymore. The postcard was published by Albert Hahn who was based in New York City (200 Broadway) and Hamburg. Hahn operated his company between 1901 and 1919. The postcard was produced in Germany sometime in the decade of 1900-1910. The postcard is part of a series (no. 5271),

This vintage photograph features three adorable siblings. Their names, "Esther, Olga,and Harold Monson" are written on the reverse of the photo. The children are well dressed and are wearing wonderful smiles. The girls are clothed in identical white dresses with lace, and are wearing identical hair bows. Master Harold is dressed in a nautical themed outfit. The Monson siblings are listed in the 1910 US census. The family was living in Jefferson, Oregon. Esther C. Monson (1894-?), Olga Christine Monson (1896-1991), and Harold G. Monson (1898-1991) were living with their parents Olof and Anna Monson. The family had added a fourth child, Agnes D. Monson. When he wasn't fathering children, Olof worked as a farmer. Olof and Anna were born in Sweden while the three children seen in the photograph were born in Iowa. The photographer of this lovely portrait is the Cronise Photo Studio which was located in Salem, Oregon. Thomas Jefferson Cronise (?-1927) was a very talented photographer. His work is recognized by the Oregon Historical Society, which possesses a large collection of his work. He is described as a man who was able to develop a great rapport with his subjects enabling him to capture their image after he helped them relax for the picture taking. Historians note that he was excellent at photographing peoples "fleeting expressions". The material was donated in 1974 by Harry Wilmot Cronise, the final owner of Salem's Cronise Studio, and Thomas's son. Tom's sister, Anna Louise worked for photographer Francis J. Catterlin in 1892 and purchased the studio less than a year later. Tom was a successful book and job printer and he began to assist his sister in operating the studio. By 1893, he had become his sister's partner. After deciding to pursue a full time career as a photographer, Tom bought the Elite Studio in 1902 from Hart and McLennon and renamed the studio "The Tom Cronise Photo Studio". Upon Tom's death in 1927, his widow, Nellie, continued the business until 1930. She was succeeded by her and Tom's son, Harry Cronise. A portrait of Tom Cronise can be seen below.
