This vintage photograph features a pretty young African American woman posing for her portrait at the Kuhn studio in Brunswick, Maine. The woman is wearing a couple of pieces of jewelry. She has a collar pin which has a photograph of a young white woman. On wonders if the photo is of someone that the subject knows or if it is just a beautiful model. The woman in this photograph is also wearing what appears to be a pocket watch. The timepiece is hanging from her blouse exposed between the lapels of her jacket. The woman has a nice smile and expressive eyes. An inscription on the reverse of this image indicates that the subject’s name is Nora.

  1. Amazing photo. I wish I had it for my book. The hair is remarkable. I’ve run across photos like this, where you wonder about connections. There could be a family connection. In Maine, it was possible.
