This glass plate negative of Laura Mack (1862-1954) was taken the year before she married Horace Kephart and was in a box labeled Laura Mack in Kermiss dress. In a letter of February 16, 1946, Laura Kephart writes her son Leonard Kephart and ends the letter explaining that the enclosed photographs were made from glass plates that she recently found. She states that "Horace Mack took them - the dress is Russian Honeymoon". Russian Honeymoon was a play written by Eugene Scribe and adapted by Mrs. Burton Harrison. Laura Mack wore the dress when the play was performed at Cornell University in 1886.
