Abstract

"What's in a Picture?" piece on the Dorcas Fair fundraiser put on by the Dorcas Society in Hollis in 1913. The southern Maine chapter of the charitable group was formed in 1897 by Hollis resident and author Kate Douglas Wiggin. During the society's early years, Wiggin held the fair at her home, "Quillcote," which is where Biddeford photographer Charles E. Moody snapped this shot of Charles B. Frothingham, James W. Meserve, and Frank Leavitt, hamming it up as they sold (and wore) aprons.
