circa 1872
A black and white photograph depicting the Newport Young Ladies Archery Society, c. 1872. The photograph was taken on the grounds of Beaulieu, at the time the home of Federico L. Barreda, Peruvian minister to the U.S. His daughters, Elvira and Mathilde Barreda, are in the photograph. All of the girls appear to be in fairly uniform dress, with light-colored dresses, dark sashes, and tilted hats. Most also hold bows. At left, a few girls prop up a target. One man stands at back left in a suit and hat. Trees frame the background of the photograph.
