The woman in this photograph is quite pretty.The photographer, J. R. Pearson, chose to pose her for a profile view. Pearson’s studio was located In Pittsburgh, Pensylvania. An inscription on the reverse of the cabinet card has an inscription which identifies the subject as “Sheila Pape”. The subjects first name was not easy to decipher so it is possible that “Sheila” is not the correct name.

  1. For some reason, I keep thinking that a profile is less common than the full-face portrait. They seem more unusual, and more often than not, the play of shadow and light along the outline of the face is quite lovely. I find her heavy eyebrows quite charming!
