About This Image

Undoubtedly by a master of English photography. A wonderful bit of genre magic. Two women, tastefully dressed in taffeta skirts and dark velvet jackets, pose with one reading a letter to the other. In oval mat (you can see the outline of the oval on the scan) but larger image shows more of their voluminous skirts and studio.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
