A woman poses in front of the Farragut House Hotel, located in the resort town of Rye, New Hampshire. The original Farragut House was built around 1846, but burned to the ground in the early 1880s. In 1883, the rebuilt hotel opened once again, and it remained open for almost a century. The hotel closed in 1974 and was subsequently demolished, so we're extra grateful for this photograph, which shows the 1883 version of the hotel in the background. Another great element of this shot? Those blurry figures running around in the background. Their soft, ghostly edges create a striking contrast between this woman's sharp gaze and the sharp focus of her portrait. This photograph was most likely taken by Clarence Trefry, who was active in the Rye area from the 1890s and well into the 20th century.
