Today I would like to introduce you to Mary West.. this is a photo from Jinglebob's Grandmother in South Dakota. It may technically be a cabinet card..it is the correct size, but there is no photographer info. I realize that not all the early cabinet cards had Photographer info..however I really hesitate to date this as before 1871. I believe that to be highly unlikely.
I get a western feel from this photograph.. anyone else care to share their first thoughts? Maybe it is just the pigtails and ribbons. A date?? I will let you all guess on this one.
