Orphan Photo 43

Here is an interesting vintage cabinet photo . One one side is a nice clear photo of what I am guessing is a mother and child. I love the clothes from the time. The mother is dressed in a long dress with high collar and long sleeves plus a big hat. The darling child is in a short dress with a big bonnet. Looks like railroad tracks in the back ground. So my guess is they are at a railroad station. Sadly no names on the photo to identify.

Then on the back side is a faded photo of a couple.

I have never seen this before in my buying of vintage photos.

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.. grace

Orphan Photo #42 Texas Mr and Mrs Henry Carl Berndt

This is the other cabinet photo I bought at the antique store. It also is identified and I hope that a family member finds it when I offer it on ebay. This picture is smaller and is of an older couple. It is identified as Mr and Mrs Henry Carl Berndt Industry Texas and has written in ink Emilie Wertz Berndt . In pencil it has Emilie written and not sure if they are trying to tell us that it is Emile parents or if the lady is Emilie.

Did a quick check on ancestry and came up with no information on him.

Hope that you have enjoyed seeing this orphan photo I found... Thanks For Stopping By .. Grace

Orphan Photo # 41 Houston Texas Frank and Bertha Koehler Wedding

Take a look at the great vintage cabinet photo I found this week at an antique store. I plan to put this up for sale on my eBay site but wanted to give you a preview.
I love vintage wedding photos and this one is fantastic. She is in the most beautiful dress with ruffles. There is a flower in her hair and her bouquet is fairly large.
The groom is a real handsome young man with three piece suit and a mustache.
Best of all this one is identified. So sad that families let them go.
Back is identified as Frank and Bertha Berndt Koeher Houston Texas Wedding photo.

I found them in the 1910 census in Texas. Census says he is 36 and she is 20 and that they had been married 5 years. If this fact is true she was 15 when they married. The census has him born in Germany and she was born in Texas.
I did not find them in Texas in 1920 on a quick search.

Orphan Photo # 40 Sweden

Here we are back to vintage CVD photos of men from overseas.
This handsome man is probably in his early 20's and has the coolest of thin mustache
Photographer was Tonsas and looks like Anette Haag. I am guessing this is another photo from Sweden
Sadly it is also unidentified so we do not know who he was.

Orphan Photo # 37 Sweden

Here is a forgotten orphan CDV photo of a young man. Photographer was G J Kylander ( I think ) in the town of Kalmer, Sweden. Want to learn about Kalmer click on the link I did not find anything on the Photographer.
This is from the early 1900's and I am guessing he is in his late teens to very early 20's.
I have other photos from this photographer I will be sharing.
Sadly there is no name on this orphan photo.
Thanks For Stopping By... Grace

Orphan Photo # 36 of Mother and Child

This is another wonderful old photo I bought some time ago. It is from 1931 and marked mary and Jean. What a beautiful baby and the women is so pretty. Her hair has wavy curls of that time period. I bought several photos of this child at one estate sale including wedding photos. All I remember now is that they were from Georgia.

Always is so sad when families do not keep their photos. Hope that you have enjoyed seeing this wonderful photo from 1931.

Orphan Photo # 35 Ronald Paul

Some vintage photos I can not pass up. I have this urge to buy a photo, to own it for awhile and then sell on eBay in hopes to find a family member or fill someone's collection of vintage photos

This one is special. Not only is the child adorable but he is identified. Photos of black children are not often found at estate sales or antique malls.

This cutie is 1 year old Ronald Paul " Lonenza Cleaners " first boy. He is one years old in this photo. Sadly there is not last name or identifying city or state.

Hope that you have enjoyed seeing this wonderful vintage photo. I am guessing that this photo is from the 1940's
