Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

For the last two decades, Peter Cohen has been combing estate sales and flea markets collecting vernacular, or "found" photography taken in the middle part of the twentieth century. Among his collection are countless images of women of all ages in various unconventional activities for the time: swigging booze out of a bottle, boxing, playing pick-up football, smoking, or shooting guns. Snapshots of Dangerous Women collects many of these photographs, showcasing women who are equal parts badass and rebellious, and, above all, clearly having a lot of fun.
