Sometimes you see a photograph and you can’t get it out of your mind. I visit the Shorpy.com website often because he uncovers a wealth of 100 year old negatives, prints them out and then shares them with the rest of us. This young woman can be found on his website in a post titled “Incarcerated, 1919”. Looking at this proud young face, it’s hard for me to imagine what she did wrong. How many wrongs were committed against her before she became desperate and did what, steal bread? Sell her body? Fight back?
