Portrait of a Young Girl, circa 1865. I love this image for so many reasons. The pose is charming, the dress amazing and you get a rare view of a woman’s shoe of the time period. The shoe appears to be a straight last type made of fabric. This is a cartes-de-visite size image. Since the image is unidentified, I’ve christened her “Lollie.”
