These college-age women have a determined air about them, as if they’re on a mission. They’ve arranged themselves around a pedestal with a Union Jack flag draped over it, adding a patriotic aspect to the portrait and perhaps suggesting political activism. Were they participants in the women’s suffrage movement? What does the ribbon on the flag signify? The cabinet card has no information on it, so we’ll have to guess. Feel free to offer ideas in the comment section below!
