Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend. As the days get darker and chillier, I’m taking my #FashionFriday cues today from this cozy cutie. Bundle up, everyone!
This ca. 1924 negative is part of the Hagley Library’s collection Thomas C. Marshall photographs (Acc. 1990.270) collection and features a little Thomas C. Marshall, Jr. The family’s patriarch, Israel W. Marshall (1850-1911), founded the Marshall Brothers Paper Mill in Yorklyn in 1890. The wealth generated by this family business allowed his son, Thomas Clarence Marshall (1885-1969), to become a man of many hobbies, including photography.
In addition to other subjects, the Hagley’s collection of his photographs contains images like this one, documenting the Marshall family and their friends. Other subjects include more photographs of Auburn Heights, the Marshall Brothers Paper Mill, Marshall’s collection of Stanley Steamer automobiles, and various locations and events in and around Delaware and Chester County, Pennsylvania.
