I have four delightful photos to share with you today. All are carte de visite photos, 4 x 2.5 inches. Three were taken in Terre Haute, Indiana, including the one above. C. Eppert was the photographer, his shop was located at No. 87 Main Street, between Third and Fourth. No backgrounds in these three photos are indicative of the 1860’s. This little girl and her mother have clothing appropriate for the time period – the little girl’s bolero jacket can be seen if you look closely.
This photo was also taken in Terre Haute, but by J. M. Adams, Photographer. His shop was located opposite the opera house. This dress is a bit more decorate, and the girl wears a white blouse with ruffled cuffs that peak out from the sleeves of her dress.
