  1. What I find interesting about this girl is her hair. The hairstyle and where it is parted is often the only clear indicator of what gender the child is. Her parted on the side and rolled into a curl on top was typical of boy’s hairstyles in the 1840s (and 1850s?). I guess 50 years is long enough for a hairstyle to flip genders, but I am still surprised by it.

    and that’s amazing that the photography studio is still around!

  2. Just found your lovely blog. Such a beautiful child. Thank you for sharing.
