Maids, circa 1900.
Here is a rare look at a group of house servants, circa 1880-90. Each gal is holding something to do with her occupation. On the far left is a cleaning maid with her broom and dustpan. Next is a young girl holding what looks like a cup and saucer. In the center is a lovely cook with her rolling pin and bakery pans. Next is a very young girl holding either a pudding or small cake. Finally, we see a girl holding a rather mysterious object (a shoe? a sugarloaf?). Fascinating!
