I am very excited to present this photo – four friends who decided to have their photo taken together. Jewel Snell, Anna Wren, Marian Wein and Edith Van Loom – are the ladies in the photo. Unfortunately a photographer’s name or place name is not given.
The skirts give me an indication this photo was taken in the 1870’s – and hairstyles of at least two of these women corroborate that – long curls incorporated into intricate designs. The bolero jacket seems a little outdated – more a fad of the 1860’s – but some fashions were held over when money was scarce.
Perhaps someone will recognize the names and have more information to share!
