YOUNG WOMAN: SALVATION ARMY WORKER IN LEWISTON, MAINE

A young woman poses for this Cabinet Card photograph at the studio of I. L. Hammond in Lewiston, Maine. She is wearing the attire of the salvation army and is holding a tambourine. Note her bonnet and the structure of the dress which creates the appearance of a thin midriff. One of Hammond’s photographs appears in the autobiography of Marsden Hartley (1877-1943) who was an American modernist painter, poet, and essayist in the early 20th century.

  1. Neat, I never would have guessed that that was a Salvation Army uniform. I see the little S on her collar. Where did you find that information?

  2. Hopefully the Salvation Army did something about her awful posture. She’s got no neck.
