New York City: Not Published, 1915. Photography. Not Bound. Very Good. Item #027315

Five photographs in black and white; three of the images show groups of young women, practicing steps and positions for the traditional Maypole dance; one image with a folk dance, in costume; another of a double-line 'duck through the arms tunnel' of girls. These young women appear to be of high school age and are accompanied by their adult women instructors. No date, photographer, location or studio imprint; the visible 'skyscraper' architecture in the smog-ridden background and clothing styles give the impression of a downtown New York City locale circa 1915. Average approx. 7 1/4" x 8 1/2" size, one slightly longer, all oblong format; a little surface-crinkling; the 'folk dance' with old crease-line; bit of tips chipping; in very good condition.

Price: $125.00
