This cabinet card portrait is by S. B. Terry of Winona, Mississippi. His subject is a young girl with an angelic expression. She is wearing a fancy elaborate hat with ostrich plumes. Her hair is styled with  sausage curls. She appears to be draped in white cloth. This portrait is very styled and atypical of many of the portraits of this era. The photographer, Sterling B. Terry was born in Mississippi circa 1862. He married his wife Anna in 1882. The 1900 census found him living in Winona with his wife (age 38), son William (age 15), and daughers Anne (age 11), Mary (age 10), and Clara (age 7). The 1900 and the 1910 census lists S. B. Terry’s occupation as “Photographer”. To view other photographs by this photographer, click on the category “Photographer: Terry”.
