You just never know what’s going to show up in the weekly batch of flickr uploads from the Library of Congress. The photo above is from this Friday’s bundle of 1910s images–it’s one of three photos depicting noted illustrator James Montgomery Flagg and his life-sized doll. She doesn’t wear clothes, except a big plumed hat. In one picture, they’re posed holding cigarettes. Huh.
Flagg (1877-1960) is best known for creating the image on the original “I Want You” Uncle Sam poster.
