This was a small advertising poster for Frances Benjamin Johnston’s photography business in 1895.

I think the image of a woman striding into the landscape with a case of tools in hand (and others tucked firmly under her arm) must have been quite a bold one for that time (although she was well supported by her sleeves).

The artwork was by Mills Thompson, shown below (Photo by F. B. Johnston).

Both images via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.
