Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Photographed today is a young woman with a very pretty hair comb of the peineta style popular in the late 1880s. She also sports a long necklace that drapes over her jabot. She is otherwise unremarkable, although I am certain some loving person cherished her image.

The photo was made by Charles A. Saylor’s City Gallery. To see other photos from this studio, click on the link under Photographers. I think she looks a bit like Contemplative who was also photographed by Saylor. Could they have been related?

    You’re right about the similarities to Contemplative. Sisters or the same person a few years apart?
