This is a tin type..the folder it is enclosed in just says "Nellie" so we know that it is indeed a little girl. The way she is positioned I think perhaps Mom is covered by a piece of fabric and is behind holding her in place. I know with one of my grands I hid behind the photographers table during a photo session..and if you look closely you can see one of my fingers.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
We have had some action on Photo Number Seventy-eight..it is headed to its home tomorrow!!
