Three Victorian Cabinet Card Photographs with a Bristol Connection

£19.99

Product description

Three Victorian Cabinet Card Photographs with a Bristol Connection

The same woman appears in two of these cabinet card portraits in one she appears with a man who may be a sweetheart or relative as she is not wearing a ring and in the second she appears with two other women of a similar age. The third is a portrait of an older woman to whom there is possibly a family resemblance to the first woman.

“The cabinet card was a style of photograph which was widely used for photographic portraiture after 1870. It consisted of a thin photograph mounted on a card typically measuring 108 by 165 mm (4 1⁄4 by 6 1⁄2 inches).”

Size
1) Man and woman. 4.25 x 6.5 inches. J Holloway, Rostrevor House, 32, Cambray Place, Cheltemham. On the reverse there is the address of a photograph and picture framer Morris Hole & Co. Bristol and a pencil inscription referring to Southville, Bedminster, Bristol. The photgraph has some age spots visible on the lighter areas.

2) Portrait of three young women. 4.25 x 6.6 inches. Fred Snary, The Castle Studio, Bristol. The photograph has some surface marks in the upper left hand corner and over the woman at the back of the group.

3) Older woman. 4 x 6.5 inches. G. H. Wicks, 116, East Street, Bedminster, Bristol.
One mark otherwise in excellent condition.

A fascinating and collectable group of Victorian cabinet card portraits from the relaxed pose of the couple to the stern expression of the older woman and the mischievous smile of the girl at the back, who were they?
