Meet the Brown Sisters of Memphis, Tennessee

Katie, Lottie, and Mattie Brown pose for this portrait at the “Cottage Gallery” of Gebhardt and Company in Memphis, Tennesse. The reverse of the card has a message sending “compliments” to the children’s Aunt Hannah and is dated “July 21/ 1887”. Note the props that the children are holding; a book, a basket, and the middle child is holding something that I can not determine. What do you think is in the basket and what is in the centered girl’s hand? Leave a comment with your ideas. (SOLD)
