I have a cabinet card of a young girl holding a rolled paper that could be a graduation certificate.
Her dress is cute with a little bow at her hip, huge 1890s sleeves and what appears to be a large white collar that drapes over the sleeves. It is hard to tell, but I think she is wearing long white gloves and she has cute little white shoes peeping out from beneath her hem. All in all, a lovely little dress for a young girl.
The photographer is Townsend, Gray and Knapp on 256 Main St. Patterson N.J. According to this website, these photographers were working at this studio during the years of 1893-96. Ta Da! We now know that this young girl had her photograph done between the years of 93-96!
