This is a CdV from the antique shop in Solway Minnesota.
This young lady with ringlets most likely sat for her photo in the late 1860’s. The CdV has square corners typical of the late 1860’s. Her hair does not cover her ears..young people started uncovering their ears in photos after 1865.
I found out that Mr. Mote worked with Mr Swaine in 1864, later he worked with his brother, who was a fine artist with oils and colors. Mr Mote was in the photography business for about twenty years 1864 to 1884.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
