staged enbroidery and spinning wheelThis staged historical picture kind of annoys me.  You would think she lead an idyllic life of leisure.  The photographer should have had her spinning on the big wheel at least.  Not doing delicate embroidery.

Photograph from an historical museum in Connecticut.
