    MAILED in 1909. Would this catch a guy's eye, getting a look at legs the dresses usually cloaked to the floor? AND flying up now, showing "leg".?? -----I read gents would stand by street crossings hoping for some "ankle". Far cry from what a guy can see on a corner now! Isn't it funny that fellows might get turned on by THIS!!
    My puzzle is--- did the ladies tossing the girl upended into the air, really have the strength to do this? Probably had way more arm muscle back then with all the manual labor participated in hourly. . Was there trick photography for an assist such as this in 1909? How did they do this, if so??
    Upside down stamp means "I Love You"--I am pretty sure.

      This is a composite picture that was re-photographed. The two women holding the fabric are in the original picture. The women in the air was cut out from a different image and placed onto the original picture. The entire set up was then re-photographed. This was a technique that was done with late 1880s Old Judge real photo baseball cards. I talk about it in this CW post: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/171369-goodwin-and-co-old-judge-tobacco-baseball

      I lived in San Diego most of my life, fair big city, have seen more than a few naked women in public, bless them.

      I agree with Bonnie and rneiderman ~ definitely "trick" photography.

      Speaking of seeing naked people in public, my wife and I were visiting an old friend in San Francisco one day in 1975. We park the car and as I'm putting coins into the parking meter, along comes a man sauntering down the busy sidewalk, holding all of his clothes in a bundle in his arm, naked as a jay bird! No one expresses surprise or shock, or even pauses to look at the man! My wife and I look at each other with raised eyebrows, then shrug and go about our business. Only in Frisco!

      I was going to say--lost his clothes gambling--but, maybe he was sparaed with somethong toxic. How strange? A bet? ---as for me,I would have ran scared.

      I'm no Shrink, but I think the guy was a mental case ~ fried brain cells from too many years of too much doping. [;>)

      Here is is soooo hot (AZ) people are almost in that state at the supermarket.. near nude, but we have a reason. . There is a school at he corner. I feel so bad for the kids because they are forced to wear uniforms!! Should not be in Phoenix. NOT! NOT! Cotton is the fabric for this town--and the lighter the better--Just thong shoes, shorts, crop tops--that is how we manage here. Men in "wife beater" undershirts, much of the summer, or muscle shirts--even the mailman is in shorts!! And churches have ministers in shorts. We live VERY casual here due to extreme weather conditions. But never heard of a walking nude meandering about-- Phoenix is very conservative. More churches than bars.
