Description

A photograph of eleven young women who were part of the Jolly Sardine Club in Georgetown, Colorado. The Sardine Club seems to have been a social group for young women that begin around 1892. The photograph is taken in the Randall family's yard and has the women wearing and posing as if they were Greeks or Romans (including togas, wine and pears, one playing the harp, etc.). The names of the women are numbered on the front and labeled on the back: Lena Strousse, Pearl Randall, Helen Atkins, Mamie Stewart, Mary Parker, Leni Stewart, Ella Weaver, Ida Hughes, Lottie Miller, Edith Nash, and Floss Randall. The back also includes the note "Posed by Mrs. Graham." The photograph was housed for a long time in a non-archival plastic sleeve that, upon removal, pulled off some of the print (which is why there are white dots and splotches on the image).

Provenance

The name of Louis Keck, a merchant in Georgetown from about 1887-1904, is written on the back of many of these photographs. It is unclear if he was the owner of these photographs, was the one who labeled them (or had copies that someone reproduced these labels from), or was the photographer (though some are on mounts of George Dalgleish, who was likely the photographer of many of them).
