Framed, 1907 panoramic photo of the 'Missouri Jewelers Association Convention' with 'Star Photo, Co. St. Louis, MO' credit. Fantastic clear sepia tone image of 84 men in dapper dress - all in hats and suits. The yard long photo is in simple antique wood frame with wood back and with new hanging wire. Unfortunately the photo is disintegrating around the edges - tears, water damage, buckling, are all present. The photo does not have a proper backing - it is resting on the wood back panel of the frame. The frame seems sturdy but does have some separation at the corner joints. See photos. (18 men are sitting, 66 men are standing, only 2 have full beards, 8 have umbrellas, and all 84 are wearing a hat).

Lot of 5 vintage wedding/formal occasion photos in folders or cabinet card format. All are black and white. None of the people are identified but some of the folders are marked with the photographer's studio name. Fashions worn are the only means used to date the photos. The studios identified on the folders are: Clarkson Studio, Wallace - Salisbury, MO., Chas. A. Miller Moberly, MO. (x2). The photos only are approx. 5" x 7" size - each is adhered to its folder/frame. Folder/frames are of different size. The cabinet card photo appears to be the oldest and is missing the lower right corner. Some foxing/discoloration on the folders is present related to age.
We have for your consideration an unusual lot of twelve (12) stand-up figures made from real colorized photos of children. The photos are primarily of a brother and sister and were taken between 1958 and the early to mid 1960's in iconic clothing/uniforms of the mid century modern era. The photos were adhered to flat wood pieces that mimic the shape of the child in the photo. Each figure fits into wooden base. Some of the figures have the child's name or the date/occasion on which the photo was taken. The figures and stand sizes vary. The tallest is the girl in the brownie uniform - 14". The shortest is the girl in the turquoise dress - 10 1/4".These unusual photo stand-up figures were hand made by the parents of the children in the photos. The wooden stands show scratches and wear.
