Frances and Mary Allen of Deerfield, Massachusetts fed turn-of-the-century Americans' appetite for all things colonial with their photographs showing colonial themes and clothing. This couple wears reproduction eighteenth-century clothing. They were probably on their way to a party or to participate in one of Deerfield's historical pageants when they posed for this photograph in a Deerfield, Massachusetts home around 1910.
