Helen Lukens Gaut lived from 1872 to 1955. She was a successful photojournalist, with pub credits in a many magazines, including at least one that’s still kicking today—Cosmopolitan. She drove herself around California in the 1910s and 1920s taking pictures and writing about her travels, before seemingly giving this career up for private musical pursuits. She left behind a mess of photographs, though, many of which offer a rare glimpse into early-twentieth century California. The PMH recently acquired about 200 negatives by Gaut, which they’ll be exhibiting until January 8th.
