PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN WITH CHARISMA IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK (CDV)

A pretty young woman poses for her carte de visite portrait at the Charles S. Rawson Gallery on Fulton Street in Brooklyn, New York. I would estimate that the subject is in her teenage years. Her sparkling eyes and smile give her a very engaging appearance. The photographer, Charles S. Rawson is listed in Brooklyn business directories in at least !870 through 1892. This cdv is in very good condition (see scans)
