Today I share a lovely photograph of a woman from the turn of the 20th century. This is not a carte-de-viste or a cabinet card. The front is a medium grey with a decorated oval. There is no notation of photographer, city or state. There is, however, in faint pencil, something written on the lower left-hand side of the photo, near the oval. I didn’t notice this until I brought the photo up in large form on my computer. Perhaps this woman’s name?
Her dress has a very decorated bodice with a high neckline, per the time period. It is unusual to see a woman wearing glasses in a photo, but then again, she looks very no nonsense to me.
