A Little Love

Feb 2022

Sending you a bit of Love on this Saint Valentines Day.

Detail: “Cupid”: Walter-Mitchell Studio: (Floyd A. Walter & William R. Mitchell- American) (28 E. 14th St. New York) cabinet card with pasted gelatin silver print, ca. 1910. 13.9 x 9.9 | 20.0 x 14.7 cm. With stretched “wings” and sporting a “quiver”, this unknown child model Cupid holds an “arrow” while standing before a painted studio backdrop. The wings, arrow and quiver are all hand-drawn in this vintage combination print taken at the Walter-Mitchell Studio, then located in the Joseph J. Little Building on 28 East 14th Street in New York City, still standing today. Built in 1881, this important “cast-iron building drew tenants who were artists and manufacturers, drawn by the ample light provided by the unusually large north-facing windows overlooking Union Square.” (Village Preservation online resource) From: PhotoSeed Archive
