Description

Maine photographer Chansonetta Stanley Emmons traveled with her daughter Dorothy to photograph people and places in rural communities. Emmons and her daughter lived in Massachusetts, but often returned to Chansonetta's home state to photograph, specifically in the Kingfield and New Portland area, near where Chansonetta was raised.

This photograph was the first in a five part series which featured an old table-chair, a convertible piece of space-saving furniture designed for smaller spaces. Entitled "Old Table Chair #1," the table-chair appeared in its compact position.
