Liberty Bell 10

Liberty Bell 12

Quite a collar!

From the early 1900s we have a photograph of a nice looking lady with quite a collar! The dress looks to be black or dark fabric of some kind, possibly silk or wool gaberdine for example, and my guess is that the collar coordinated in color. It was probably very striking in person. Also interesting to note is that it looks like she was sitting next to someone, to the left of frame. This might have been prepared as an individual portrait after the couple’s original sitting.

The photographer was Gray, at 1030 Tremont Street, Boston, MA.

    She does have a much more “modern” look to her. Gray the photographer, is mentioned frequently around the Internet. His name was George E. born Feb 1855 in Maine, married to Minnie – George is shown still working as a photographer as late as 1920.

    This was apparently an after thought or the result of a cropping to see more photos:)
