Photo of Czech women knitting crocheting and by ElmstoneIsle,This unusual and rare carte de visite (cdv) original 19th Century photograph is of four young women: one is holding a book, the other three appear to be knitting, crocheting, and making lace (or some other craft). The photograph was taken in Prague. Were they all sisters from one family? Students at a young ladies' school? In any case, an interesting example of women doing handwork.
