Brown was the photographer at No. 19 West Main Street Marshalltown, Ia.
A rather severe looking woman, with a lace collar and a brooch, her gown has trims and buttons. She probably has a hair rat in the front of her hair. Hair rats were usually made of collected hair and then rolled into a shape and then your own hair was rolled and pinned around it. Hair rats made your hair have more volume.
