Volume 14, Number 13MOUNT HOLYOKE COLLEGEDecember 1 , 2000

An onlooker at the presidential review held November 13, 1918, in celebration of Armistice Day, this lady is seated on a large copper incense burner. She appears to be a wealthy dowager, her tiny bound feet encased in embroidered silk slippers. The woman standing nearby, also with bound feet, is probably her maid, carrying her mistress’s handwarmer.
