A pretty and wide-eyed young girl poses for her portrait at the Wheaton studio in Schenectady, New York. The girl is wearing a dark dress and a white lacy pinafore over it. She is also wearing a necklace and the beginning of a smile. The photographer of this image is Van B. Wheaton (1870-1948). The Anthony Photographic Bulletin (1897) reports Wheaton winning a medal at a photography exhibition. His son, Ivan P. Wheaton was a World War I aviator, race car driver, author, and photographer.
