WOMAN IN A FRAME IN HARRISBURG, PENNSYLVANIA

LADY IN A FRAME_0002A young woman is featured in this cabinet card that appears to be a memorial photograph. The image has a musical theme. Note the pictured string instrument and the scrolled sheet music. Perhaps the young woman pictured  in the frame was a musician. The photographic studio responsible for this interesting image is the C. S. Roshon studio which was located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The cabinet card gallery has another Roshon photograph in its collection). This second photograph is one of the more controversial images in the gallery’s collection because it very well may be a counterfeit cabinet card. The image features a Native American man with a turkey vulture on his head.  Click on the category “Photographer: Roshon” to view this photograph.

TWO PATRIOTS IN MILLERSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA PHOTOGRAPHED BY EX PITTSBURGH STEELERS COACH CHUCK NOLL

Cabinet Card’s often present more questions than answers; this is one of those images. The Cabinet Card features two men in uniform, wearing sashes that look like a portion of the American flag. Both men are wearing caps that display a number. Each man is also wearing a badge and ribbons on their jacket. One of the ribbons may say Washington Campaign and have Millersburg written on the bottom line, but this is just a hypothesis. Hopefully, a visitor to this site will share a more informed opinion about what organization these men may be representing. Are they Firemen, Railroad Workers, Military Veterans, Fraternal Organization Members, or some other specific occupational or service group? The photographer is Charles W. Noll. If his nickname was Chuck, than he is the unofficial namesake of the former football coach, Chuck Noll of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The photographer is listed in the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania directories of 1902 and 1904.
