Figure 1.-- This studio cabinet card portrait according to a note on the back was taken in 1906 or 07. Note the new style mount and the greenish-grey color. The boy is Ivan Eugene Perry. He was 4 or 5 years old and wears a tunic suit with long ringlet curls. Tunic suits suddenly became very popular at the tur-of-the 20th century, but ringlets for boys were beginning to decline in popularity. The ringlets are perfectly positioned so they will show well ijn the portrait. It is coordinated with a lace collar and cuffs and a white belt for contrast. The lace collar and cuffs were a touch of Fauntleroy styling, which began to decline in the nedw century, especially after mid-decade. We are not sure what color the tunic may have been. It was clearly not black. Long stockings and button shoes completed the outfit. Ivan is posed with a tricycle. The mount sizes also varied after the turn of the century. It is is 8x6 inches and the actual photograph 5 1/2x4 inches. The studio was Bergmann in York, Pennsylvania.

Ivan Eugene Perry (United States, 1906-07)

This studio cabinet card portrait according to a note on the back was taken in 1906 or 07. Note the new style mount and the greenish-grey color. The boy is Ivan Eugene Perry. He was 4 or 5 years old and wears a tunic suit with long ringlet curls. Tunic suits suddenly became very popular at the tur-of-the 20th century, but ringlets for boys were beginning to decline in popularity. The ringlets are perfectly positioned so they will show well ijn the portrait. It is coordinated with a lace collar and cuffs and a white belt for contrast. Perhaps necause mother did not want to cover up the lace, she did not add a floppy bow. The lace collar and cuffs were a touch of Fauntleroy styling, which began to decline in the new century, especially after mid-decade. We are not sure what color the tunic may have been. It was clearly not black. Long stockings and button shoes completed the outfit. Ivan is posed with a tricycle. The mount sizes also varied after the turn of the century. It is is 8x6 inches and the actual photograph 5 1/2x4 inches. The studio was Bergmann in York, Pennsylvania.
