Kaufmann's Arcade Portraits?
Posted by: Laura Henderson (ID *****6034) Date: July 09, 2010 at 08:05:31

I have an old photo of an unknown family circa 1910 and on the back is stamped "Kaufmann's Arcade Portrait" (may be portraits or portraiture, since photo is cut to an oval). On the back in pencil is the name "Marty Feins"and a number (3164-1). What I can read of the stamp says: "KAUFMANN'S ARCADE PORTRAIT...TO REORDER ANOTHER PH...PLEASE BRING IN NUM...ON BACK OF..." (you can obviously fill in the blanks).

I was wondering if this "arcade" might once have been part of Kaufmann's department store in Pittsburgh? Does anyone else know of a "Kaufmann's Arcade"? I have already called the Kaufmann Arcade in NYC and they tell me that building was done in about 1930, and could not be the same.

The family in the photo (father, mother, three boys under ten) are obviously affluent, and dressed in Edwardian clothing. I would love to be able to find the records of Kaufmann's Arcade and identify this photo and pass to someone who might treasure it.

Please contact me if you can provide clues.
