In costume in New Bedford

An oar appears for the second time on this blog in this cabinet card from New Bedford, Massachusetts.  Printing at the bottom indicates it was made at the O’Neil photography studio in the Hastings’ Building.  The girls are all wearing the same Classical costume, with one holding the oar in her hand, suggesting it was a symbolic part of their ensemble and not an ordinary studio prop.

New Bedford is a coastal city with a large harbor.
