What it is:

Cabinet card measuring approx. 3.25 x 6.5 inches.

What I know about it:

Photographer is J. Vogt of Hamburg, Germany.  Written on the back in pencil is 4.9.1912, which, since it’s Germany, I’m going to take to be the date September 4, 1912.


This is another one of the ones my friend Christine (“harriedcostumer”) brought back for me from her time in Hamburg.  I think this one is beautifully elegant, and I’m impressed by the way the backdrop gives a real impression of depth.

  1. Handsome woman. She has a nice figure as well. I think German women are often attractive.

  2. I think they tried to borrow her hairdo for Jessica Chastain’s version of “The Heiress,” (http://tinyurl.com/cgz25go) but it’s really working better here.

  3. Love this pic! She looks very regal. And the placement of the fence – in front and behind her – really helps with the depth too. 🙂

    • I think it’s fun the way the fence is so obviously phony, but still set up like the real thing. There’s something sort of fairy-tale about it.

  4. Wow. What a beautiful photo!

  5. I was studying the photo first and then read what you wrote and I had to laugh because I got exactly the same thought as you did!
