Happy July 4th! Here’s a pair of pictures of a patriotic gal posing with a 48 star flag (1912 – 1959). These are contemporary prints made from original 5” x 7” glass plate negatives in my collection. Given the pictures were shot on plates instead of sheet film; they probably date no later than WW1.
I’m unsure what these fascinating images represent or imply, or whether it was proper to have the flag on the ground, but they are captivating. What do the CW folks think?
