THREE SIBLINGS AND A THREE WHEEL SCOOTER IN VALENCIA, SPAIN

three-spanish-kids

This vintage photograph is difficult to categorize. It looks like a cabinet card image and is mounted on stiff board cabinet card paper. However, the reverse of the image has divided postcard printing including a stamp box.  The three children, in this photograph are adorable despite their serious expressions. It is extremely likely that they are siblings. Note how the oldest child has a good grip on her little brother’s shoulders in a show of physical support and affection. The children are wearing nice but not fancy clothing. The little boy is standing on a three wheel scooter. Both girls are wearing necklaces with a charm as well as hair bows. The photograph was taken at the Julio D. Derrey studio. Printed advertising on the verso indicates that the studio was located in Valencia, Spain’s third to largest city.

AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL AND HER SPOOKY DOLL IN BARCELONA, SPAIN

spanish girl f

An adorable little girl wearing a cute dress and large hair bow poses for her portrait alongside her “spooky doll”. There may be a better word than “spooky” to describe the doll but the doll’s face is so lifelike that it it’s a bit creepy. The doll may have a haunted look but the little girl is a sweetheart. This photograph was taken by the Roe studio in Barcelona, Spain.

TWO LOVELY YOUNG SISTERS WEARING INTERESTING AND UNUSUAL ATTIRE (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

spanish kids

The two cute and gorgeously dressed girls featured in this vintage real photo postcard are presumably sisters. I am not sure how to best describe their dresses and hats so I will just label their attire as “unusual and interesting”. Hopefully, someone informed about fashion history, will leave a comment with further explanation. This photo postcard was produced in Spain.

FAMILY PORTRAIT OF PARENTS AND THEIR FOUR CHILDREN TAKEN IN AN ALLEY SOMEWHERE IN SPAIN

SPANISH FAMILY_0003

This cabinet card portrait immigrated to the Cabinet Card Gallery from Spain and the photograph was likely taken there. The image features a set of parents and their four daughters. The youngest child is sitting in a wood wagon and is accompanied by a doll. It is not clear in what setting this photograph was taken. Is the family inside a studio, or are they actually being photographed in an alley? I’m guessing that they are in a studio and the photographer has created an outside scene within his studio. Be sure to note the family members great hats.

PORTRAIT OF A SPANISH WOMAN IN PALMA DE MALLORCA

SPANISH LADY_0003This image features a well dressed woman posing for her portrait at the Amadeo studio in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Amadeo’s gallery was located at 19 Calle San Nicolas. The subject of this photograph is unidentified. She is wearing jewelry and a nice hat. Her arms seem to be covered by translucent lace material that resemble stockings, but worn on the arms. It is clear that I need some major assistance from the cabinet card gallery research department (comprised of the site’s visitors) in order to explain the woman’s undersleeves. It is unknown whether the woman in this photograph was a visitor or resident of Palma. Palma de Mallorca is a major city and capital of the province of the Balearic Islands in Spain.
