In this early Benjamin Gifford photo, we see five girls in matching dresses apparently rehearsing for a stage performance. The photographer's address of Sixth and Morrison in Portland on the original dates this photo to 1892 or 1893, before Gifford moved his studio to the Dalles. While the girls are not identified, this is a very sweet photo I'm sure Maurice Chevalier would have loved. (He would have been about five years old when this photo was taken - about the same age as our aspiring actresses.) -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
