Mrs. Tom Brown
It's really not my intention to have this blog be a repository of odd pictures, or even an exclusively safe haven for boxing women, or, by extension, wrestling women as well, but this image was just too good to resist.
Agnes Brown was the wife of Tom Brown, a classic New Orleans jazz trombonist. She's seen here holding a stuffed alligator in her front yard. That's actually not that unusual in New Orleans- lots of people had stuffed alligators. I think what makes it unusual is the top hat, but it could also be those cute white socks.
I would have liked to have known the Browns, because they seem like funny people.
Another cool image from the Louisiana Digital Library.
