Studio shots, no. 215: unidentified early 20th-century woman.

Photographer Orren V. Foust was active in Wilson from about 1907 to the 1930s. This formal portrait of an African-American woman dressed in an Edwardian-era satin dress with a high-necked lace collar was likely taken shortly after Foust set up his Wilson studio. Do you recognize her?

Many thanks to Keith Boykin for sharing this photo from his collection.
