    Some of these made me smile! And you even met the repair/mend aspect of the prompt!

    The two stereograph photos – of the man with umbrellas to fix (good find!) and the cute one with the black-stockinged legs and umbrella of a girl or woman reading are my favorites. Good show!

    Some unusual images. I found the “A Meeting of umbrellas ” a little sinister but I’m not sure why and “Under an Umbrella” a little strange and something that I would expect to come across today rather than in 1906. Good work!

    My fav is “Under the Umbrella.” Those black stockings – the petticoat . Free to be!

    Love these graphics! I live in NYC, where inexpensive umbrellas are dropped in the street when they tear or the metal bends in high wind. So I love the “umbrellas to mend” photo — a tribute to repairing rather than discarding.
