BIG SISTER STANDS, WHILE LITTLE BROTHER SITS ON TRICYCLE, IN DIGHTON OR LEROY, MICHIGAN

by bmarshphd
This cabinet card portrait features a little boy on his tricycle and his big sister. The boy is wearing a bow tie, a striped shirt, and a serious expression. The young girl has a protective grip on the handlebars of her brothers trike. Her straw hat is on the ground in front of her. This outdoor scene is actually taking place inside the studio of C. E. Pelton who operated studios in both Dighton (1892-1895) and Leroy (1892-1893), Michigan. Pelton also operated a studio in Tustin, Michigan (c 1890). The young girl in this image is identified in an inscription on the reverse of the cabinet card. Her name was Maud Piper and she can be found in the Michigan birth index. Maud E. Piper was born in Williamston, Michigan in 1884. Her parents were named Isaac and Esther Piper. Unfortunately, Maud died in 1894 at the age of ten. She is buried in Riverside Cemetery in Okemos, Michigan.

WEDDING COUPLE IN MONTLUCON, FRANCE

by bmarshphd
FRENCH BRIDAL_0006
A couple poses for their wedding portrait at the studio of A. Heron in Montlucon, France. The bride and groom are formally dressed. Note the groom's top hat (he's holding it) and the bride's long veil. The groom is shorter than the bride and unlike many other wedding photos of the era, the photographer didn't attempt to hide the difference by placing the groom on an elevated surface. Another difference between this image and other wedding portraits of the era is that the couple in this image are holding hands. Apparently, they were not ashamed of public displays of affection. The lack of fear of photographing intimacy might reflect a difference of the French and American cultures at that time. Preliminary research yielded no information about Monsieur Heron. Montlucon is a town in central France on the Cher River.

A fashionable young woman holding a flower poses for her photographic portrait at the J. H. Steiner studio in Jersey City, New Jersey. She is wearing earrings and rings. She appears to be wearing a corset judging by her shapely figure. Her ethnic origin is unknown but it is unlikely that her family came to America on the Mayflower.

THREE YOUNG ADULTS HAVING FUN IN BUTLER, PA

by bmarshphd
BUTLER _0012
This cabinet card portrait features two young women and a young man posing together at the Zuver studio in Butler, Pennsylvania. The three subjects appear to be friends judging by the amount of affection seen in the photograph. One woman is leaning into the other and the young man has his arm placed behind the pretty woman in the center. The three subjects also appear to be having fun as can be ascertained from the smiles on their faces. All three subjects are wearing terrific hats. Lewis W. Zuver was active in the photography business from the late nineteenth century through the early twentieth century. A help wanted ad for his studio appeared in  the Bulletin of Photography (1921). His brother, Leonard Zuver operated a studio in Tionesta, Pennsylvania. His sister, Mary Zuver West ran a photography studio in Bradford, Pennsylvania and specialized in portraits of women and children.
