Ladies Group, West Chester, Pennsylvania This is likely a ladies social group in the well-to-do suburb of West Chester near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Nineteenth-century women were active in a number of religious, educational, community or even political organizations. Literary social groups where women gathered to read and discuss books were popular during this time and I've seen similar group photos. W. F. Grubb, circa 1890. From the author's collection.
