Alice Austin House ...A NYS Women's History Site
2 Hylen Blvd. Rosebank-Staten Island NY 10305
Category/Significance: economics (photography)
A photographer, Austen's work challenged Victorian traditions while providing examples of everyday society in late 19th and early 20th century America. Her work often mocked Victorian mores by dressing female subjects in men's clothing and even showing women smoking in public--an illegal act during the Victorian age. Her photography captured more common experiences than other photographers' work, and her photos were often displayed in prominent shows.
