Alice Austen

Dressed up as Men

October 15, 1891. 4:40 pm

"We look so funny with those mustaches on, I can hardly tell which is which," laughed Miss Austen when she saw this photograph in 1951.  "We did it just for fun," she commented.  "Maybe we were better looking men than women."

Alice herself, phony cigarette in hand, stands to the left. "Julia Martin, Julia Bredt and self dressed up as men."
