If this goes to Don Henderson ,Look on the site where the picture of your Evelyn is, there is some of the POST there. On my church site ,I have looked up the name ,Evelyn Nesbit. Born 25 Dec 1884 Tarentum,Allegheny,Penn. Died 17 Jan 1967,Santa Monica,Los Angeles,Ca.Married a Henry Kendall Thaw. the picture for her by her name shows that she has the pointed chin. In the Ancient faces picture she is looking a little downward compared to the picture that i am looking at.she looks a little olderthe skin is very clear. the eyes are a little drooping.but if this is any help. she is not wearing a t-shirt. seems like laced material is drapped on one shoulder and nothing on the other. so i guess she liked to pose loosely.so my email is ,[contact link]. if you are lds her number is , LK4B-MMY

Not convinced, her eyes have been enhanced and they didn't smile because their teeth were so bad even at that age...

Sarah Bancroft Reiland
Her sugar daddy Stanford White actually paid to have her teeth fixed. He was a rich old creep who exploited a poor young girl. The book "American Eve" tells the story of Evelyn's life, and Stanford White's eventual murder by Evelyn's deranged lover. It's fact that reads like fiction. Crazy stuff!

Not everyone had bad teeth; that is a misconception.

Wasn't there a film made of the Sanford White incident called "The Girl In The Red Velvet Swing"? Circa 1945?

Lauren Jaeger Mikalov
I've seen some 19th century cabinet photos of people smiling and their teeth looked perfect. Perhaps that is why they were showing off their smiles. Not everyone had teeth to hide.

Evelyn Nesbit. Hardly a free spirit. Exploited teenager (abetted by her ambitious mother), abusive husband, sad older life.

I think it's a real smile...also the camera was delayed in sbooting...had to keep perfectly still...thats why no smiles usually.

Exposure times were not long by this time. People tended not to smile in formal portraits because it was not considered dignified.

This is early 1900s not 19th century. Cameras came a long way in a short time.

That's Evelyn Nesbit. Someone called out the original poster and she admitted there's no relation, she just thought this random picture looked like what she thought her great grandmother would look like.

... no, she didn't because the beauty standards back then were different???? The women and girls who weren't born with faces and bodies that fit the ideals resigned themselves to using artificial means just as often as contemporary women.
