VIENNA WOMAN_0003This cabinet card portrait of a fashionable and attractive young woman is by photographer S. Weitzmann of Vienna, Austria. The image is quite stark because no props are used in the photograph. However, the lighting in the photograph creates an interesting striped effect on the wall behind the subject. The subject is unidentified. She is wearing a loose fitting dress that has a pin on it’s neckline and she is wearing a bracelet and ring. The reverse of the photograph has printing which repeats the address of the photographers studio and also lists a phone number. Research did not reveal when phone service was introduced to Vienna but did discover that international phone service between Vienna and Berlin was introduced in 1894. The date of this photograph remains unknown. To learn about S. Weitzmann and to view more of his photographs, click on the category “Photographer: Weitzmann”.
