Title

Portrait of sparkly mini-dress and huge hairstyle

Description

Black and white image of a woman standing on a carpet in front of a long curtain. She wears a long-sleeved mini-dress styled like a man's dress shirt, dark nylons, and flat shoes. Her hair is piled on top of her head in a large beehive hairstyle consisting of many curls. She appears to be wearing eyeliner and false eyelashes. Museum records do not identify the woman, but this image was part of the Herbert E. McMullen bequest, and appeared to be one of several intended to document hairstyles of the day. McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other images of daily life in the area.
