This beautiful young girl was expertly photographed and tinted by one of the most well known Western Photographer's Studio-- Whitney's Gallery of Minnesota.
The backmark and mount both suggest that this is an 1870s image. It may have been meant to be an 1876 Patriotic image as the girl has red, white and blue tassles at the end of her wand. She may represent young Liberty.
The blended tinting on her face really makes the image superb.
