More pictures from the George Eastman House museum

Credits, top to bottom:

Elaine Golding, swimmer (1900)
Running straight high jump (1884-1887) [with full skirt and petticoats!]

These are selections from about 700 photos in the Flickr photostream for the George Eastman House. The collection includes about 100 French postcards (depicting WWI themes).
