Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
Can't you just feel the rage?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone down under!!!!
Aw, Merry Christmas everyone.
Oh! Boxing with those heavy costume??
Nice concept though!
It might look civilised, but the bare-knuckles say otherwise. :)
Given the necessary exposure times I have no doubt that this was posed and that no fists flew in anger. Besides, both ladies look as if they are fighting the urge to burst into laughter.
i wonder if those fustrated feminists actulally threw a punch??

bit more info would be interesting. date was woman boxing the norm. very weird.
Are they really boxing? Each woman has a small, dark colored object in at least one of her hands. What are these objects? Why do the men stand by with towels and a small pitcher? Do the wooden frames in the background relate to what is going on or it's just a coincidence/not important that the action is centered between these structures? Hmmm......
The age-old obsession on catfighting...
DJDG: I'm not actually sure either is holding anything, if you look at the original zoomable version via the persistent url
nice shot....the suspense is killing me...who wins??
This photograph "properly" conveys something about Victorian/Edwardian femininity (not necessarily feminism, mind you): paradoxical, amusing but she most certainly works out.

Were they really... boxing? In those dresses.
What ladies! :)
No gloves too...!!!
Somthing one does not see every day. Two ladies, dressed very "formal" to duke it out. Thanks for sharing.
Wheather this photo was an actual boxing or not (prob. not) .....but photo #961 shows her on the ground with ones around her. Everyone is an actor or actress in life at one time or another !........These are all "art" in the eyes of the one who sees them that way, THEY ALL are excellent !!!!

such flair for punches
Certainly not something you expect to see...
Their outfits are so lovely.
Those guys don't seem too alarmed or worried, but they will be soon enough. Never underestimate a fight.

Point of fact:
These women are not going to box... Rather, it is a pose set-up for a photograph which at the time (Photography) would not in itself would have been taken too seriously. Also, you can observe that by their clothing these women are well to do, with their hair done, wearing their best hats, and smiling.
I like this black and white.
Should be renamed, "The Origins of Foxy Boxing", great moment captured.
