Description

Wallace Nutting took this photograph of the south parlor chamber of the Georgian-style Wentworth-Gardner House on Mechanic Street in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Chairs and rugs are arranged around the room. Several hats and a hatbox lay on the furniture. Mrs. Elizabeth Rindge Wentworth built the house in 1760 as a wedding gift for her son Thomas, who died in 1768. In 1793, Major William Gardner bought the house and lived there until he died in 1833. In 1915, Wallace Nutting purchased the house, restored the building, and added it as one of the five sites in his for-profit enterprise, the Wallace Nutting Chain of Colonial Pictorial Houses.This image is very similar to Nutting studio number 9023, "Feminine Finery", except without the model in period costume.
