A pretty young girl poses for her portrait at the Criley studio in Butler, Pennsylvania. She is beautifully dressed and is holding a rolled scroll. Perhaps the paper is her graduation certificate. She looks playfully happy in this image. Her cocked head, her smile, and the gleam in her eyes are evidence of her pleasure in the moment of the taking of this photograph.

  1. Here’s a photographer who is thinking outside the box! So many early photographs are stiff and lacking in emotion. This is a delight!

  2. I love this pic 1 It looks to me like she has seen pics of pretty women and is imitating a pose she liked.

    I wonder how old she is….
