DescriptionSixth Plate Tintype of a Saloon Girl or Prostitute. This thin young woman with bright eyes and a wry smile is posed standing in rather revealing clothing for the period. She wears a choker around her neck, matching bracelets, earrings, a long lace scarf wrapped around her sleeveless shift with just a bit of bloomer showing, and most scandalous, her naked calves! This extraordinary image is complete with the plain brass mat, foil preserver and in an embossed leather case which the lid has become detached. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.
Condition: With some trivial spotting to the emulsion, not affecting the image, otherwise fine.
