Waiting for the Ferry

This delightful photograph, taken in the 1890s, shows two women passing the time of day, chatting, waiting for a ferry. This would have been a familiar scene in many rural areas, where a ferryman used a rope to pull his boat across the river. This particular photograph was, though, posed (the young ladies are models) for artistic impact and to recreate an earlier, perceived, golden age.
