Pushing the Limits of Girlish

Pushing the Limits of Girlish
Found glass plate negative, brought to the front of my stream to show as a much better scan than the one I had done previously, and also to post in the Vintage Photos Theme Park Group for this week's theme of 'Strange Clothing."
I think it qualifies for that. : )

Flatcoat, Josephine, Alan Mays, elinor04 (Nóra Mészöly) have particularly liked this photo

Yes, I would say this outfit would qualify for 'strange clothing'. Interesting photo though, I'm glad times have changed. Good one Deborah.

I wonder if she's decked out for May Day. The background photos are also interesting and I wonder what that well-worn board on the floor was used for. Fun photo.

the top half of her figure looks slightly ghostly.
Lovely to see the interior of the room.

Thanks for all the great comments, folks. She looks like a rather masculine Little Bo-Peep to me - but perhaps it is a May Day thing.
lisabee, my kind husband did a lot of photoshop work on this, as the glass plate was not scanning very well - it does have a rather ghostly feel to it, I agree.
I am really wishing I had the original of that photograph of the kids. From what I can see, it looks fabulous.

Very low ceiling for a house of 'that' age.
Glass plates are negatives- they can be printed just like an ordinary negative. I used to use glass plates for archive photos in the 1960's.

This is not an unusually low ceiling for a Vermont (or New England) farmhouse. I think cottages in general were often quite cramped.
I love glass plate negatives (I have an album here.) The tonal quality and detail are often wonderful.
My husband has figured out the best way to scan them on our fairly cheap scanner.
