SALVATION ARMY LADY AND BIBLE IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK

A young woman dressed in her Salvation Army uniform poses for her portrait in a Brooklyn, New York photographic studio (262 Columbia Street). The woman appears to be holding a bible and her Salvation Army badge is evident on her collar. The name of the photographer is difficult to interpret but it appears to be Thelou & Co. Research reveals that another photographer, named Leeds, also operated at the Columbia Street address, and that in 1883, the studio was put up for sale.

  1. People today do not realize how fashionable and pretty the young women who were part of the Salvation Army in the 1880s and 1890s were. The dress is the height of fashion, the very latest “runway” look out of Paris. Contrast that to the dowdy look of a few years ago.
