A beautifully dressed and pretty woman poses for her portrait at the Tonkin studio. She is wearing gloves and a most interesting hat and a long necklace. She is holding a small black object in her hand. Perhaps a visitor to this site can identify this object. My guess is that its some kind of small wallet. The 1900 US census finds a Herbert Tonkin (age 32) living in San Francisco with his wife Mary (age 30) and working as a photographer. Herbert Tonkin was an immigrant to the US and was born in Wales.
