Here's a pair of lovely early photographs. They are cabinet cards from around 1910. They depict a female rider showing her horse doing a couple of tricks. It may be that she was doing dressage. In one, the horse raises a bent leg, and in the other he takes a bow down on one knee - so sweet. The woman's outfit is very nice too including a derby hat.
The photos are each 5 1/2" by 3 1/4". They are on cardboard backings that are 6 1/4" by 4". The name of the studio that took the photos is Wendt of Boonton, N.J. as it says on the card. It also says "Ivory Process" - not sure yet what that means. There is nothing on the back of the photos, but I'm showing a photo anyway.
The two photos have the obvious problem of fading. But otherwise they are in very good shape. I have noticed online that there are ways these days to darken the old photos that have faded - so maybe someone will do that. Meanwhile, I think they are wonderful as they are. Such a fun thing to find.
