A cute as a button barefoot little girl displays a wonderful smile as she balances herself with an arm on her mother’s shoulder. This cabinet card portrait is by C. A. Doane of Carrollton, Missouri. Mother wears a dress with multiple large buttons. She is also wearing a necklace. The mother in this image has a very young appearance and it is possible that these two girls are actually sisters. The photographer did a terrific job of capturing the little girl having a good time. The photographer of this portrait, Charles Doane, was born in Illinois (1857) and died in Carrollton, Missouri (1925).  He died after surgery from cystitis and peritonitis at the age of seventy-four. He is buried in Bradford, Missouri at Rose Hill Cemetery.He was survived by his wife Minnie.
