Photo: 1914 Suffrage Concert by BC Courthouse
« on: March 07, 2009, 10:47:04 AM »
This photo just popped up on eBay. It's titled, "1914 suffrage campaign days in Hackensack NJ".

I spiffed it up a bit:

The sign was hard to read, so I split that out and darkened the image to make it more readable:

It appears to say:

Don't forget!
Band Concert
Sat Evening
Court House Fountain
Suffrage Speeches
of Great Interest To The Women

I'm not 100% sure about those last 3 words, but that's what it looks like to me.

The description says: "Description: Advertising mass meeting and band concert for August 21 - suffrage campaign days in New Jersey, Hackensack, New Jersey. Portrait of band members, left to right: Miss Erika Wilrich, Catharine Flanagan, Elsa Croup, Violet Deane, Emily Preison, Margaret Morrison, Margaret Morris, Margaret Whoof, Theodora Wheeler. Size of photo: 6.4x10. Quality of photo: med".

Are any of those names noteworthy?

Gotta have this picture? Go here:
