An unknown photographer in Mexico captured the photo above around 1897. There are three women in the still shot and one woman halfway cut out of the picture. Each woman is paired with a small child while cooking. Because there is one child per woman, one could assume that the women are teaching the children how to cook. The women are not wearing wealthy garments, and are covered head to toe to protect themselves from the hot sun. All of the women are sitting close to each other and are therefore probably family to one another. None of the women have an unhappy look on their face, so they are probably performing their daily chore of preparing food for their family. Although it is unclear what exactly the women are cooking, the pile of sticks in front of the woman standing will probably be used to make a fire to cook meat. These women are examples of what we would call today “stay-at-home” wives whose sole job is to cook and educate the children.
