Unbound. A collection of 11 loose sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 3.5” x 5.5”, 5” x 7”, and 7.5” x 9.75”. Near fine photographs with edgewear creasing, without captions.
Photos of a group of girls from a summer Girl’s Reserves Camp enacting a play in 1921. The Girl Reserves were a group similar to the Girl Scouts attached to the Y.W.C.A. beginning in 1918. The photos show a large number of girls dancing in an open field wearing costumes of flowing dresses with floral or fabric headbands. The smaller photos show the more detailed costumes that some of the girls had worn, with tall pointed hats, decorated cloth, and long capes. One photo shows the camp’s troop leaders wearing their uniforms; the girl on the right has the chief officer’s patch on her right sleeve. The loose costumes and flowers give the impression that the girls may have been acting as fairies in the play or the like.
A delightful look at the summer activities that the Girl's Reserves took part in during the early 1920’s, with beautiful and attractive images.
