Interesting Cabinet Card Of a young Pasadena girl dressed in a Kimono
Photographed in Pasadena CA
Interesting CDV of what appears to be a married couple.Notice the ring on the young womans left hand, we can also see freckles on her face.The man looks to be a bit older.
I would like to think that he could be her father but he probably is not.
A table cloth was used as a back drop for this shot of what appears to be three brothers photographed outdoors
Signed photo of silent film star Mary Pickford.I picked this out of a box of mixed photos in a antique/junk store, along with this I found a signed photo of silent film star William Farnum.
Both for $3
Here is a large photo I found at the flea market.An interesting shot because of how the women are holding or not holding their instruments.
They certianly looked bored and chances are they might not even play these Instruments.The Women in the back row are holding mandolins and the front row guitars lean against their legs.Most photographs of musicians that I find or see musicians are usually holding Instruments proudly like they know how to play or pose in playing action shots.This remains a bit of a mystery to me.Who knows they could have sounded amazing?
Mabel Celia (Whiting)Husband was the photographer
The whiting family who I have posted about earlier appear here on the beach in Santa Monica CA.Mr And Mrs Whiting are seen standing with friends and two daughters,A third daughter is behind the camera lens, she is married to the Man on the left.
This is a great Tintype about the size of a cabinet card.The back of this one reads
“My darling Isabel in her Wedding dress 1879”
