This cabinet card features a wedding couple posing for their portrait at Bernardo Grolero’s Fotografia Oriental in Canelones, Uruguay. The groom is dressed in the gaucho style. Gauchos were cowboys of the South American Pampas. The city of Canelones is the capital of the Canelones department and is located about 31 miles north of Montevideo. The city was named after a species of cinnamon which is called “canelon”. To view other photographs from Uruguay, click on the category “Uruguay”.

ADORABLE SIBLINGS AND THEIR TOYS IN CANELONES, URUGUAY

The previous owner of this cabinet card asserts that the photographer, Pablo Paladino, operated a photographic studio in Canelones, Uruguay. I have been unable to find confirmation of that claim. The nationality of the cabinet card may be a mystery but it is very clear that this is a wonderful portrait of two young children. They are likely siblings. The boy is siting on a wooden toy horse. The horse is nicely detailed. Note the mane and bridle. The little girl has a doll posed next to her. The girl has a fancy hair band and is wearing a bracelet. The little boy is wearing a cap that has what looks like an anchor design. He, like many little boys of his time, is dressed in the style of a sailor. Hopefully, a visitor to the cabinet card gallery may have some information about photographer Pablo Paladino and will leave a comment with some of his biographical information.
