This cute little girl poses for her portrait in the studio of Holman, located in Warren, Ohio. She appears to be sitting on one of her feet as she peers into the camera with a dubious expression. She is wearing bows in her hair for her big day at the photographer. The reverse of the card indicates that the subjects name is Hazel Daugherty.  Research indicates that the photographer is Charles E. Holman (1847-1915 or 1919). He was born in Massachusetts and shortly after the civil war, studied photography with his brother-in-law Luther M. Rice in Warren, Ohio. He moved to Utica, New York where he worked in a shoe factory until returning to Ohio and his employment with his brother-in-law in 1875.  In1879, he bought the studio from Rice and ran the studio until about 1900.
