One of the last antique photos I posted about, was a tin type in a paper envelope. I have another photo in a paper envelope I want to show you today. But, this one is odd…it isn’t a tin type. It is a paper photo. I’m guessing it is some sort of transition photo between the tin type and the carte de visit. I’d guess it is from the 1870s. But, I can’t find solid info to back up my theory.She appears to be about 15 years old. She has a ribbon at her neck, a watch chain and possibly a ring. What I love about this photo is her hair is just a bit messy and you can faintly see her bodice is tucked into the top of her corset. I wonder how her life turned out….
