 Collection
Identifier: MS-3926

Collection contains twelve portrait photographs of women taken in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Most of the photographs have no identifying information except for studio information, and some of the photographs are mounted.

La Marche in Chicago, Illinois; Beckford Photo Studio in Boston, Massachussetts; Baron in Detroit, Michigan; Cheney and Christmas in Charlotte, Michigan; Colby in Manchester, New Hampshire; R. A. Lewis Photo-Artist in New York; and Westminster Photograph Company in Providence, Rhode Island.
