A Tribute to Alice May Curtis, 1871-1961

I own 4,000 of Alice M. Curtis's original negatives, and other material.  Born in Gloucester in 1871, Alice passed away in this city 90 years later. In this self portrait, she's reflected with her tripod in her dresser mirror. I think it's about time I published this photo and gave her some credit. She photographed ordinary things, such as her friends' gardens and indoor arrangements. In the future, this will be invaluable documentary coverage of how people lived at that time.
