1900. Item #A6501
Anonymous vernacular photograph. Women Wearing Black Burlap Masks, New Hampshire. Warren Pond Grange, East Alstead, NH, n.d. [ca. 1900?]. Albumen photo printed on old postcard stock, then cut to size of wooden frame with three borders intact. Ca. 3 x 2 inches. ** Unsettling photo of eight women wearing face coverings of what seems to be black burlap, with cut-out eye holes. Perhaps for a blackface theatrical, or a costume party?
