Pretty girl on a CDV, the bottom of photo front is stamped" Hart's Arcade Gallery" , c.1880s I just thought her expression was worthy of a look. And I love her curly hair that goes way down her back on twice enlargement..it is naturally wavy ( I think she wound it up tighter for the top of her head and I guess bows "were in). I think she did it up herself. I get an "impression" it may have a red tinge to it. Maybe Irish. Eyes are
very light. She may not yet be out of her teens. She doesn't even need to smile
Folks were supposed to sit still and not smile.
But--in this case--perfection anyway.
