Circa 1895. “Ekin, Mrs. L.M.” Whose particulars may be divined and delineated after a jot of judicious Googling. (Hint: A Sally not really.) 5×7 inch glass negative from the C.M. Bell portrait studio in Washington, D.C.


May 1918. “American National Red Cross. Aviation Camp of the American Army at Issoudun. The canteen kitchen, which, according to the commanding officer of the Camp, provides the best mess to be found in all France. Miss Givenwilson is in charge.” 5×7 inch glass negative.


December 1957. Washington, D.C. “Man with broadcast listings; woman tunes radio.” The console set, seen earlier here, is evidently a portable, or maybe this is a two-radio household. News Photo Archive 35mm negative.
