This photograph was reproduced in Mary Emily Curtis's "The Crafts of Deerfield" in "New Idea Woman's Magazine" about 1906. The article notes that mothers and daughters are "taking up again the handiwork of their colonial ancestors, following closely the spirit, methods and beautiful craftsmanship of the days before the war." The Pocumtuck Basketmakers likely made these baskets in Deerfield, Massachusetts.
