Photo Number 638

This is a photo that I purchased at the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Little girl DL
The photo is by a JW( edited to JA) Tweit (??) of Litchville North Dakota.

Her dress is too large, her sleeves are uneven and those bows are not taming that hair.  She made me smile..I hope you smiled too.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

    I wonder if John A. ever found his Norwegian girl for all round studio work?

  6. Very cute photo. I had my hair in bunches for the first time in 30 years last weekend for an 80s music festival. It was not a good look for me!
