TWO SWEET AND WELL DRESSED YOUNG SISTERS IN DERBY, ENGLAND (CDV)

WINTER

The little girls featured in this cartes de visite are adorable. They also are well dressed in their dresses adorned with frills and bows. Both appear a bit suspicious of the camera or cameraman. This photograph was produced by the Winter studio in Derby, England. Advertising on the reverse of the photograph (see below) indicates that the gallery was “patronized by her majesty the Queen”. Many photographic studios of the time made the claim that they were photographers to royalty. William Walter Winter (1842-1924) established his photo studio in 1867 at 45 Midland Road in Derby. He specifically built the structure to house his studio. Amazingly, the business still exists. Winter trained under photographer Emmanuel Charles. In 1864 he married Sarah Charles, his mentors widow. Winter operated his business until his retirement in 1910. The studio has been in the Derbyshire King family since then. Note the portrait of William Walter Winter (see below).

  1. Those old studio cameras were capable of such amazing detail. It is always a pleasant surprise when one like this turns up.
