A Winsome Lass

We have a Handsome Rake category. Why not start a Winsome Lass collection?. Miss Mullikin makes a fine starting point.

Whatta dog!

---and Miss Mullikin is good looking too!

Photo Studio Wall?

This photo appears to be a portrait done in a professional photographer's studio. The naturalistic scene on the wall in the background is gorgeous, suitably muted so as to not overpower the subject of the photo.

[Harris & Ewing was a prominent photographic studio in Washington, D.C. Among their many many photos we've published here are several which use this studio backdrop, including this one.]

My first thought

Was, "It's the American equivalent of Lady Sybil from "Downton Abbey!" I'm so ashamed of my addiction to that show.

Now That!

Is a very serious collar, Kids! I like the bow they've attached to it. Miss Mullikin does cut a fine figure in her Red Cross uniform. I wonder how she fared.
