Mother and Daughters, Budapest, Hungary

Mother and Daughters, Budapest, Hungary
A photo from Budapest for the Vintage Photos Theme Park in memory of our dear friend, Nori (see Sad News).

A mother and her two daughters posed for this cabinet card photo in the Budapest studio of Elbl and Pietsch sometime after 1897 (see below for the back of this photo). Note the girls' unique hairstyles and their fashionable dresses with enormous leg-of-mutton or gigot sleeves.

The painted backdrop is somewhat indistinct but what looks like the bottom of an elaborate staircase appears on the left. The chairs are made of bamboo (or perhaps faux bamboo) and are decorated with tassels.

As one girl sits in a chair holding a book, the other girl stands with one hand resting in a comforting gesture on her mother's shoulder. Her other hand is holding some flowers alongside the arm of her mother's chair.

So let's remember dear Nori and cherish the treasured images she has shared with us here on Ipernity and over on Flickr. Perhaps you'll want to compare this photo with the dozen other photos and backmarks from the same studio that Nori collected in her Elbl & Pietsch album on Flickr.

A fitting tribute to Nori's sensibility and connoisseurship. I can't believe it's been almost a year already.

Thanks, Theodor! I can't believe it either. I only knew her casually through Flickr and Ipernity, but I still miss her interesting postings and comments.
