Actresses from Vaasa

Actresses from Vaasa

Two actresses, presumably, dressed in costumes. One is wearing a white dress adorned with flowers, a pearl necklace and a wreath of flowers on her head, the other is dressed as a boy, her costume resembling something that could be from an idealized pastoral fairytale. The two are holding hands, as if caught while joyously skipping through the idyllic countryside.

F. Grönroos, Vaasa, Finland. Circa 1900’s.
