Editorial comment for “In the Lane”:

Our Illustration.

MRS. APPLETON’S “In the Lane,” which forms our illustration this month affords a striking example of the charming way in which photography renders a simple subject. Nothing is more common than a roadway winding through a wood, and it is not unusual we believe for a charming young lady to await the coming of some favored guest from the city at such a pleasant meeting place. We are not authoritatively informed that the young lady in Mrs. Appleton’s picture is keeping tryst, but she might well be, and her presence adds greatly to the scene by giving it that touch of human presence which makes a picture appeal to our finer sense. “In the Lane” is a charming study.
