THREE ADORABLE LITTLE SIBLINGS AND A ROCKING HORSE IN ………………

ROCKIN HORSESharing is never easy for siblings but these three children appear to be doing a pretty good job of avoiding combat over rights to the toy rocking horse. The children, dressed in white sailor type suits are quite adorable. None of the three kids look all too happy posing for photographer Louis Heuser. Heuser’s name is stamped on the reverse of the photograph but no address is given. Research was not productive in finding the location of Mr. Heuser’s studio.

It was operated by a number of members of the Lauder family. Business directories list the studio as Lauder Brothers between about 1880 and 1884.. Edmund Lauder’s son, James Stack Lauder (1853-1923),  founded the Lafayette Studio in 1880. He became the first Irish photographer to be granted the Royal Warrant. He earned this honor after photographing Queen Victoria in her Golden Jubilee year (1887). James Stack Lauder had three brothers who also became photographers. The brothers names were George Marsh Lauder (1858-1922), Edmund Stanley Lauder Jr. (1859-1895), and William Harding Lauder (1866-1918).
