A pretty woman stands among some plants at the photographic studio of Patten, Perkins and Stratton in Boston, Massachusetts. The studio was located at 47 Hanover Street in Boston. The woman is wearing a pretty hat and a large bow on her blouse. She is wearing a pattern dress and a collar pin. Note the woman’s fingerless gloves.

  1. This picture looks very familiar, I believe you must have gotten it on eBay because I bid on it. 🙂

    I liked her interested dress, hat and fingerless gloves!

  2. I read recently that the aspidistra was one of the most common indoor plants in Victorian times, and therefore in Victorian-era photography, because it was just about the only houseplant that could withstand the fumes of gas lighting.
