Description

A tintype portrait photograph of a young lady in a light coloured long dress and elaborate hat. She is pictured standing against a picturesque studio backdrop, with her left and right hand rested on a wooden prop. Her dress has a high collar and is wrapped with a neck tie. She is adorned with a necklace, a bracelet on her right hand, and a hand bag on her right arm. She is pictured standing towards the right of the photographer, though her gaze is directly towards the camera. Her cheeks have also been coloured with an after touch pinkish hue.
