Pictures of Turn of the Century Children and Teenagers

Flattr this!

This entry is part 1 of 20 in the series Cabinet Cards

Here are some cabinet cards, post cards, and metal photos of teenagers, children, and young adults from the Victorian Era that I digitized on my scanner yesterday for the Carondelet Historical Society. I am really fascinated with the backs of cabinet cards, and I wish that they hadn’t had stickers put on them 🙁 The photo by G.G. Shellabarger of Horton Kansas shows the young lady’s dress in exquisite detail. The little boy on the tricycle is totally cute, all dressed up in his fashionable whites, which I’m sure probably didn’t stay so starched and white for long!

About The Author

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
