This photograph was reproduced in Madeline Yale Wynne's "Maker of Baskets" published in "Good Housekeeping" November 1901. Wynne notes that Deerfield, Massachusetts, baskets were being woven by workers between the ages of six and sixty years of age. She writes "Women have always been the makers of baskets; it has always been a woman's art." Raffia can be seen hanging from the post on the right. The women on the left are weaving baskets made of grass.
