Photo Number 641

This is a photo from right around 1900..my best guess is that this is a boarding house  or a family gathering. scan0004

The women are wearing blouses and skirts that were popular after 1900.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

  1. Reminds me so much of the tv series "Christy" and the clothes they wore.

    Have a good day, Connie.

  2. Speaking of TV shows, this photo reminds me of one on BBC/PBS called the 1900 House where a family tried to live in a real 1890 victorian home with all the "creature comforts" of the year 1900. I think they bathed once a week - and took half the day cooking - and nearly sweated to death in the summer and froze in the winter. I don't remember if they had an inside toilet.

  3. Nice photo. Sorry I haven't been helping much lately--swamped with to do lists...but I still lurk briefly most days! :-) ~Abra

  4. Well, this looks like one of those "old-of-the-old" photos...a real survivor.
