About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Just a Question

Wouldn't a smoke and drink be somewhat scandulous during that timeframe?

[I believe that's the point. - tterrace]

Very, very beautiful

Very, very beautiful girl. I looked at this photo many times during last 3 years and still like it. There is some kind of mystery, or I don't know what is it.

PS. This girl could be today about 125 years old (if it could be possible)

Turn of the Century look

This is a wonderful picture, her delicate pose and alluring smile make her very elegant despite the informal dress. I am fascinated by the styles from the turn of the century, with the long flowing hair and dresses... quite a contrast to the Victorian look. This reminds me very much of the women painted by Maxfield Parrish. I used to have a number of Parrish prints in my apartment years ago in my single days, and often received compliments from female visitors on the nice artwork. Who knew that I would get positive responses from women for adorning my place with pinups? This photo would fit right in. The calendar idea is a great one.


Beautiful young lady.

And, a smoke and a drink doth not a polluter and/or a glutton make, necessarily.

20th-Century Gal

This photo is a true representation of America...
for the previous Twentieth Century.

Miss Gluttony and Pollution!


she’s well over 15 now... ;)

How old is she?

That girl looks to be about 15 years old! Rein it in, guys!

this photo

I think this photo shows great intrest in the historical time line for me

I second that

I'd buy a "Girls of Guerin" calendar myself. That would look just awesome on the office wall...

And sometimes....

A cigarette is just a cigarette...


what a naughty party girl. Thankfully she's not showing any of that scandalous ankle. That would just push the public over the edge.

[True. But what about those elbows? Provocatively bare! - Dave]

Oh yeah!!!

Fitz knew how to pick em.


Dave, if you would make up a 2008 calendar using the girls of Guerin, I would buy it, would look great in my office. This one would have to be Miss January.
