Pratt-Campbell Mansion Interior View; Wichita, KS
A rare photo of the interior of the Pratt-Campbell Mansion in Wichita, KS (today a Local Landmark). Floral woven portieres puddle on the floor. Fern stands display elegant statues. But perhaps the most stylish piece in this parlor is the bamboo settee. Early Victorians were fascinated with style trends from other far-away cultures including Japanese, Greek and Chinese. Faux painting (in general) was a less-expensive way to give an upscale look to many items including furniture. While faux bamboo was readily available at the time this photo was taken (usually birdseye maple stained yellow and cut to look like real bamboo), this settee is undoubtedly real bamboo. This photo courtesy of the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historic Museum (www.WichitaHistory.org).
Woman in Interior - Original/No. 1 Kodak Print
We have several interiors. They tend to be low in contrast because of the low light level. In this print a woman sits in the foreground in a rattan chair. She is a little out of focus or moved during the exposure. There is a date on the back of 1897. The room is filled with furniture, objects, and pictures. Actually we should not find fault with the Victorian decorating style since we have more pictures on our walls than shown here.
