PORTRAIT OF A LITTLE GIRL ALL BUNDLED UP FOR WINTER

This vintage photograph features a cute little girl all bundled up in her winter outdoor clothing. Her coat and hat are unique by todays standards. She is wearing gloves and a nice grin. This photograph was taken by the studio belonging to John D. Strunk. He was a talented and prolific photographer who operated a studio in Reading, Pennyslvania. After adding this photograph to the Cabinet Card Gallery, the site will display fifteen of his images. According to evidence gathered in preliminary research, he worked as a photographer between 1888 and 1910. This photograph measures about 5 3/4″ x 7 3/4″ and was taken during the last half of his career. An additional aspect of this photograph is that there is a ghost image on it’s reverse.

  1. Gosh, I love “ghost images”. I could write all day about them. ….Guess that’s why I’m a writer?

    This little chick-let, it seems to me, is from a wealthy family. It appears that both the coat and that odd thing on her head that we usually refer to as a hat, are fur.

    It’s also unusual, I think, that especially for the probable time this portrait was taken, the child is wearing pants. Also, mittens, not gloves. Again, for the period, this sums up as what might be called a “snow suit”.

    Confident and relaxed-looking child. No doubt she’s used to being photographed. I’d love to see her baby pictures. Thanks CC.
