CDV from 1881 (the year is printed on the back) of a blond woman from Christiania (the then name of Oslo). She wears a dress of a rather coarse material (perhaps wool) but with a very fashionable crinkled front and what seems to be a watch on a chain around her neck (could also be a medallion, but the size would be right for a watch). Taken by the photographer L. Szacinski. Szacinski, or Ludwik Szaciński de Ravics to give his full name, was born in Poland and came to Norway in 1865. He came to be one of the leading photographers of the town and is considered to be one of the best photographers in Norway of his time.

I don't know it they really are - but they do look the part. CDV from late 1890s(?) of a young man and two women in matching (though not identical) dresses, from Stockholm.

I don't have much information about this photo - not more than that it was taken by Fichtel, located on 126 Bergen Line Avenue, Union Hill, New Jersey.
But I can make a few well-educated guesses. I think it is very likely that the two women are family, and judging by their ages, possibly mother and daughter. The photo is probably taken in the early 20th century. And they might very well be immigrants from Sweden - or at least related to some such immigrant - because I bought the photo in Sweden, and sending portraits to the old motherland was a quite common occurrence.

By the way - Bergen Line Avenue, or Bergenline Avenue as it is written today, even has its own article on Wikipedia. And Union Hill is now a part of Union City.

One of three photos (all in cabinet card size), in a set of three, of Ellen and her husband Henrik Gahn, Ellen alone, and her mother Augusta Björkman. The photo is taken in Stockholm and and most likely very soon after their marriage in September 1888.

Alice Ellen Silfverstolpe (sometimes spelt Silverstolpe) was born in Stockholm on the 2nd of July 1866. She was the 6th child of Augusta Vilhelmina Björkman and David August Leonard Silfverstolpe (major general), and the second daughter - but her older sister Aline died just 2 years old, less than 3 weeks before the birth of Ellen.

Ellen married Henrik Jakob Fredrik Gahn on September 29 1888 in Stockholm. He was a captain at the regiment of Västmanland and disponent (a title hard to translate, but similar to a top boss in a shareholding company) at Kåfalla bruk. He was born at Kåfalla bruk on June 6 1855 as the son of Henrik Pontus Wolter Gahn and Lovisa Fredrika Cederborgh, and died at Kåfalla April 19 1910. Ellen and Henrik had three children:
Hans Henrik August Colquhoun (born 1890)
Märta Fredrique (born 1891)
Carl Wolter Henrik Colquhoun (born 1894)

Here's the photo of her mother:

Here's the photo of Ellen in 1888, right before her marriage

One of my favourite gems from my collection of vintage portraits: a young girl in Vienna dressed in an elegant velvet coat and with well polished boots. The photo dates from after 1873, but not too much after I think. The photo, a cabinet card, was taken in Vienna - but I bought it in Prague.
