Available . . .

This was a small advertising poster for Frances Benjamin Johnston’s photography business in 1895, via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.

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.
