A -

Same as "P" but there is a slight tear in the matte on the right side along the line of the photo.

This precious baby photograph shoes a small child in a dress with little baby shoes, sitting in chair that has been covered in a floral tapestry. Because dresses were used for both baby boys and baby girls during this time, it is very difficult to tell whether or not the baby is male or female. The baby's face is slightly out of focus but it's cute, chubby fingers are clear. It's leather-shoed feet point out to each side as it looks out past the photographer to someone or something behind him/her. The photo has been adhered to a cabinet card and is signed in the corner by the photographer/photography company: J. W. Burke, Ashburn, Ga.

Photo is 5.5" X 3.75". Whole cardboard cabinet card is 8" X 6"

This photograph is similar in style to "N", with a lovely young woman, likely from the 1910s with round face, lacy dress, and full hair, looking out at the camera. The young lady, likely in her late-teens or twenties, looks out at the viewer in her best dress and a pearl necklace around her throat, over the high, lacy collar. The photo is oval with a matte that has a light-blue ring around the photo with a little ribbon embossed at the top to make it look more like a frame. There is some wear to the matte and photo.

The corner of the matte has the name of the photo studio: Kelley, Barnesville, GA.

Photo measures approximately 5 1/4" X 2 5/8" and matte measures approximately 9" X 5.25"

This precious little toddler sits in a tapestry-covered chair, wearing a white dress with lace cuffs and collar and a little pin on the chest. Since both little boys and girls were dressed in dresses at this time it is difficult to determine gender but based on the information on the back, it is probably a little boy by the name of Johnny. He sits up attentively in the chair with its little toes sicking out from under the dress with the ankles crossed. One hand grabs the arm of the chair and the other adorable little dimpled hand sits in his lap. His hair is combed over neatly to the side and his dark eyes look off past the photographer.

The photograph is pasted onto a cardboard cabinet card with the name of the photography studio across the bottom: Farmer & Johnson Art Studio

The coolest part of this cabinet card is that on the back is pasted a request card identifying the age of the child: 1, Color Eyes: Brown, Color hair: illegible, Remarks: Plain white dress, Name of one to be enlarged: Johnny Kimble, Name signed on contract: Mrs. ... Royal, Street No: empty, Solicitor: illegible.

At the top of the attached paper it says: ARGO MFG. Co. 147-153 Fifth Ave. Chicago. Below that is stamped information for the photography company identifying what the purchaser has requested for purchase.

Photo is 5.5" X 4" and is pasted on top of a cabinet card that measures 6.5" X 4.25".

A sweet, little girl with dark hair leans against a ratan chair in this photo. She wears a dark skirt, tights, and boots, in addition to a dark jacket with white lace at the collar and cuffs, a white, lacy shirt, and a giant, plaid bow at the neck. She leans against the arm of the one-armed chair and rests her hand on it while gazing past the camera.

The matte indicates that the photo was taken at Mersereau,

1104 Market St. Ssan Francisco.

There is some damage to this antique photo from general aging and it appears that some flecks of dirty water have been flicked across it. The edges and corners of the matte are also pretty beat up.

Photo measures approximately 5 1/2" X 3 7/8" and matte measures approximately 8 1/2" X 6 3/4".

This young man, probably in his early teens, appears to have just graduated from some sort of program as he's dressed in his best suit and tie and holds a long, rolled up piece of paper, tied at the center with a ribbon in a bow. He sits on a ledge in front of a window (probably a prop) with a tree or bush outside. The photograph was taken in the studio of Russell Bros., Ensley, Ala. as indicated by the cabinet card. The photo itself is in a matte that is inside of the folded envelope, additional decorated with embossing around the photograph.

The matte over the photo had been glued down but has come apart at the bottom revealing the name of the subject - Henry Spuibs.

Photo in the matte measures approximately 5 1/2" X 3 1/2". When open, the card measures 5 7/8" X 21"

Two young ladies, likely sisters, look out past the camera in this antique photograph. They wear high-contrast colors with dark lace over light fabric and what looks like perhaps some beading on the bodices with high collars. Their hair is piled on top of their heads in true 1910s or earlier fashion. One young woman has her arm around the shoulder of the other, which can be seen by her hand on the shoulder. Just their busts are visible in the photograph.

There does appear to be some slight damage to the photograph in the form of another photo or paper stuck to it but it's not overly obscuring the photo.

Photo measures approximately 2 11/16" X 2". Matte measures approximately 5 3/8"X 3 3/4"

This vintage photograph is of a handsome, clean-shaven , handsome young man in a wool suit jacket, stiff high color, and printed silk tie with a pin at the base of the knot. He looks past the photographer into the distance. His close hair cut, clean face and appearance give the impression of a respectable young man.

The bottom corner is stamped Hearn, Macon, likely the photographer's company, and comes in its original cardboard folding envelope with a beautiful stamped seal of a wreath and ribbon on the front and some illegible text. The photo is not glued into the folder but is kept in place by a couple of folded pieces of cardboard that were designed for the task.

There are a couple of little ink spots on the back, some wear along the edge of the cardboard case as it has been opened a lot of the decades, and the photo has sustained what appears to be a bit of water damage along the bottom edge. The photo has aged to a pretty sepia color though the contrast is still impressive.

The photo itself is 6" X 4" and is printed on photo paper that is 11" X 6.75". When open, the cardboard folder measures 11" X 17".

This vintage photograph features a stoic, middle-aged woman in a ruffled collared dress with puffy sleeves and a pocket watch pinned like a broach on her chest. Her hair is smooth and beautiful and pinned up on her head. She looks out past the photographer with a serious expression.

It is pasted on a cabinet card that for some unknown reason has been cut off across the bottom through the middle of the photography studio's stamp. This was perhaps to fit inside a custom frame? "Ewell. W. Ross Photo Studio" can still be read but there is more text below that that has been lost.

The photo measures 3 13/16" X 2.75" and is pasted on a cabinet card measuring 5.5" X 4.5"

I -

Two siblings are pictured here - a young boy in a dark, wool suit with long curls, and a baby of unknown gender. The baby wears a long, white or light-colored gown and little sweater. The baby sits in a high chair covered in a damask cloth and the little boy props his left hand on the handle of the chair with his right down at his side. The photo is obviously taken in a studio with a backdrop pulled down behind them.

I-2 is similar to the first photo except the boy is looking more directly at the camera and the baby is smiling (which is adorable). However the photo is slightly out of focus.

Photo measures approximately 5 1/2" X 3 7/8" and the whole card measures approximately 9" X 6"

This adorable little baby wears a short-sleeved, light-colored gown with lace at the collar, sleeves, and skirt. It appears to be wearing white stockings as well and little booties. My favorite part is that it wears a dainty little necklace and a ring on its middle finger. It sits in a fabric-covered chair and looks out past the camera, probably at its mom, as it slightly sucks on its bottom lip.

Photo is rectangular but is matted in a folding card. In the oval opening of the matte, photo measures approximately 5 1/2" X 3 1/2" and card, when open, measures approximately 11" X 14".

This sweet photo is of a young girl, perhaps a young teenager, dressed in a ruffly white dress with three quarters length sleeves, a big bow on the back of her head, with her hair pulled back, and a sort of sassy hand on her hip. She looks strait at the photographer without reservation, knowing that she looks very pretty. There is a pin near her collar and a belt around her natural waste. There is a dark backdrop behind her.

At some point in the past, a child has scribbled on the back of the cabinet card with a pencil but the front is free from pencil markings

Photo is 3 7/8" X 2.25" and is pasted onto a cabinet card that measures 6" X 4.25".

This adorable, vintage, black and white photograph is of a chubby little baby, its mouth closed, a dimpled chin and fingers, and its hair slicked into a little curly mohawk up the center of its head. It wears a dress and since both baby girls and boys were dressed the same a century ago, it makes it very difficult to tell gender. It sits impressively still in the skirt of the dress with a fabric backdrop and look strait out past the photographer. It has been cut into an oval and adhered to a cabinet card that is labeled as being produced by Miss Anniel Pickett, Americus, Ga.

Photo measures approximately 3" X 4 1/8" and the whole card measures 5" X 7"

This vintage black and white photograph depicts a young man with no facial hair in a trim suit learning on a chair. The buttons on his solid jacket are double breasted and his plaid pants come all the way down to his leather shoes and a straw hat with a dark ribbon (barber shop quartet style) rests on the seat of the elaborate wicker chair that he leans on. A backdrop has been placed behind him to make it look like he's standing in the corner of a room. The photo has been adhered to a piece of cardboard, wither by the original owner or, more likely, by the photography studio. His name has been written in pencil at the bottom in mostly illegible cursive though the last name is clear - Brady. The elements of time adhered the back of another cabinet card on top of this one and some damaged remnants remain stuck on top of the young man's picture. At some point it appears that a child got ahold of a pencil and scribbled across the back of the photo but thankfully didn't get ahold of the front.

Photo is 5.5" X 3.75", whole card is 6.5" X 4.25"

This vintage black and white photograph shows a beautiful, well proportioned and curvy woman with pretty eyes and a small mouth and lots of wavy dark hair on top of her head. She wears a gauzy lace top with a collar that goes all the way up to her chin with a ruffled collar at the top. She has a pin at the base of her neck and a cross necklace around her neck. The photo has been cut into an oval and pasted onto a cabinet card that is signed by the photography company - Kelley, Barnesville, likely a company in Georgia as the photo was acquired with a lot of other photographs in North Augusta, South Carolina that were also taken in Georgia and a few other states in the south. There is some wear to the photo and cardboard card around it. Please see photos.

Photo is 5 1/4" X 2 11/16". Card is 8.5" X 5"

A cute little toddler with curls and chubby fingers wears a light-colored dress, white socks, and shiny, black shoes with buckles at the ankles in this antique photo. (S)he sits on a chair covered in a patterned fabric draped over it in an unidentified studio. The oval photo is matted with a dark line around the photo to kind of "frame" it and dark lines around the edges of the matte as well.

Photo measures 3 7/8" X 2 1/2" and matte measures approximately 7 1/2" X 4 3/4".
