This image from the Oshkosh Public Museum is one of several in the archive that show this woman in drapes and poses similar to that of "Meditation" by DeForest (RA Fox) shown in the next image. I believe this woman and the woman in "Meditation" were one and the same.

  1. I purchased photograph (print?) by “Tonnesen Sisters” Copyright 1900 of a cute little girl reading a newspaper wearing a bonnet and glasses at a auction a couple years ago. It is marked “Chicago Inter Ocean June 16, 1901,” and also has a mark “MULTI-PLATINUM PRINTS, A.L. SWIFT & CO., CHICAGO.” It was sandwiched between two plates of glass and the photograph’s face is now stuck to the glass. Is there a way to have it safety removed from the glass? Thank you.

  2. Hi Keith,
    I really don’t have any expertise in this area. You might want to contact the R.A. Fox Society, http://www.rafoxsociety.com. They are a group of print collectors and I think I recall a feature in their newsletter about such things. Good luck!
