More Civil War Era Handwork

George Eastman House

A few weeks ago I posted pictures of women doing handwork about 1855-70. I've found a few more and I also found a source for similar early photographs.

The Ross J. Kelbaugh Collection includes several occupational photos of sewing women among the occupational photo he has collected.

Loved the links. Thanks for sharing. My brother just got back from a vacation where he visited some Presidential sites, etc. and he took some pictures of the quilts and stuff he found there. I posted some of the pictures on my blog if you'd like to look at them.

Scroll down to the September 16th post. There is also a link in there to the other pictures that he took if you wish to see them.
