Large ANtique group photo possible Illinois pageant girls with state banners and american flag

Quantity available: 1


This large cabinet carded photo ( 12 x 10" with card) has several young women on a stage ( notice the doors under the stage) all dressed up in fancy dresses carrying Illinois state banners. Maybe this was a state pageant? The girls on the right have fancy wide brimmed hats and the girls on the left have bows in their hair. THey all have the same bow tie shoes with white tights and seem to be about high school or college age. One young lady has a long chain and locket and another has a long chain and what appears to be a long key. One girl did not like having her photo taken and bowed her head so you could not see her face. A girl in the back row is carrying a small american flag. The american flag has three red stripes below the square of stars .On the backs of the hard backed chairs, there are the stickers that would have come with them when the auditorium purchased them. Notice a row of rounded back chairs in the front for additional guests. This has an old oak floor too. The photo has a silver cast ( called silver gelatin ) which might help date the photo. I would guess it is edwardian by the length of the hemlines. THere are no other markings  or maker.   VintageSparkles offers Layaway on all our pieces regardless of which site it comes from.All layaway payments will need to be in the form of a check or money order only.
