O.T. Frasch Images Acquired in 2011

Looking at the O.T. Frasch images we acquired in a particular year won't show patterns; after all, the postcards are purchased at different times from sellers all over the United States and occasionally from around the world. But it's interesting to see how our knowledge of Otto's work has grown over the years, and how many images we've been able to purchase at a time.

The number of images purchased continued at a steady, if moderate, rate in 2011. The most unusual image was a boudoir studio photo - a smiling young woman taking off her stockings. We assume this was a gift for her husband. It has an image number and a tiny Frasch signature in the lower right corner.
