Jennie Smith on porch


Source: Image Collections Online – “Jennie Smith on porch”

Part of my job (a too small part, but I’m a little biased) involves working on adding metadata to the Frank Hohenberger photo collection. I have lamented and complained and whined that there is not a good way to blog about these images, because some of them are quite wonderful. But it just occurred to me that the “press this” bookmarklet might be the perfect solution.

So, I give you one of the first images I cataloged: Jennie Smith sitting on her porch in Barbourville, Kentucky, smoking a corncob pipe, taken by Hohenberger in 1933. I love everything about this photo.
