Vintage real photo postcard, 1908, uncirculated, divided back with azo stampbox with triangles up in all corners, photograph by J.L. Blessing, published by The Blessing Studio, Salamanca, New York, United States. © Casas-Rodríguez Collection, 2009.
I love history and culture. I received my BA in Anthroplogy and attended Graduate School for Indigenous Studies. You are now probably saying “Ah-ha” right now as my first photo was of a Geisha and this weeks is of a Seneca (Iroquois) woman. In the type at the bottom of the photo it states her name is Ah-Weh-Eyu – Pretty Flower.
A Blessing In DisguisePhoto Log: Sept 1908 Pretty Flower has changed my life. She is like the Mona Lisa with eyes that haunt and charm. Never have I seen such beauty and modesty. If she would have had me for her husband I would have brought her home, no matter what mother said. But, Pretty Flower refused all my advances. As a token of my affection I only produced two photographs. One for her and one for me. As I write this, it rests inside my front coat pocket. Whenever my spirits are low I look at it and remember Pretty Flower.
