YOUNG WOMAN POSES FOR A NAUTICAL THEME PORTRAIT IN CROUCH END, ENGLAND

by bmarshphd

LONDON OAR LADY

A pretty young woman wearing a sailor dress poses with a boat oar, rope, and life preserver at the Williams studio in Crouch End, England. Hopefully, she didn't get her hair wet because her hair is so long that it might take decades to dry. This nautical minded subject appears to be standing on the steps outside a building, though it is possible that she is actually inside a studio in front of a terrific backdrop. Crouch End is five miles outside of London.

TWO LADIES HOLDING HANDS IN VAIL, IOWA

by bmarshphd

J. F. Barton documents the resolution of the conflict between the Hatfields and the McCoys. Mrs. Irma Hatfield and Miss Henrietta McCoy met at the Barton studio to resolve the decades old dispute that decimated their families. Sorry! I couldn't resist making up a story to accompany this cabinet card portrait. The image begs for explanation, but unfortunately,  the reason for the pictured handshake is lost in history. The ladies are wearing plain dresses but nice hats. Both women are wearing fingerless gloves. The woman on the right is wearing a belt that may have been the prototype of the automobile seat belts of today. J. F. Barton is humorously mentioned in the Denison Review (1902) as a first class photographer who is "kept busy printing smiles" on his customers.
