Back Page - Those Wicker Chairs


That wicker furniture!

You see it in so many of the old "studio" portraits.


One reason was that it was lightweight and could easily be moved around inside and out, as a prop for portraits.

Young woman
Five loops up left edge of the arm.

Now let's compare the middle photograph from the row above to the middle photograph in the row below. Do you see the similarities? Could this have been the same studio?

There is a rattan straight back chair sitting next to a rattan one arm style chair in both photographs.

the above is a repeat for comparison
This is the same chair as the one just above.

THE KIDS Lesson one.
It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned.
Here are a few.
You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
