Beautiful Woman from Los Angeles, California

A beautiful photography of a lovely woman.  Is she dressed for a party?  Or is this a wedding photo?  Large cuffs of lace at the sleeve, and caplets at the shoulder, along with a small bit at the neckline give this dress a special look.  It looks as if there is gold braid at the hem, waist and bodice.  And the woman is wearing white gloves.

This photo was taken by Lamson Studio, 313 1/2 S. Spring Street, Los Angeles, California.  The photographer’s name is in gold imprint which dates to 1895, and the uneven scalloping along the edges are from the same date.
