wedding couple

This vintage photograph features a couple posing for their portrait at the studio of E. W. Glazer in Lyons, Kansas. The bride is wearing a pretty two tone gown and holding a bouquet of flowers. The groom is sitting in a wicker chair and wearing a dark suit with a corsage. The reverse of the photograph has the inscription “Otto P.”.  One can assume that this name belonged to the groom seen in the photograph. The photographer, Elijah W. Glaze was born in 1864 in New York. “Wilson’s Photographic Magazine (1898)” reported on Glaze winning an award for his work at the Kansas Photographers Convention. The “Bulletin of Photography (1913) announced that the Glaze Photography studio had ben taken over by W. D. Jones.

CUTE BABY POSES FOR PORTRAIT IN LYONS, NEW YORK (IS THAT A MOHAWK?)

An adorable wide-eyed baby poses for a cabinet card portrait at the photographic studio of Stanley, in Lyons, New York. The child is wearing a gown and a very interesting hair style which looks like a predecessor to the modern day mohawk. She is wearing a pin on her collar. The pin has lettering that may spell her name. The letters are unclear but it appears to say “Darlene”. Perhaps a visitor to this site can decipher the word on the pin and leave a comment with the correct information.
