This is a Cabinet Card from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
We rarely see a dress with a patterned fabric, it looks like the outline of light colored flowers. This dress also has a leather belt. The dress is gathered right at the bust line and looks to have somewhat dropped sleeves. She has a pocketbook in her right hand. Her long hair appears to be caught up in a pony tail and swept over to her shoulder.

This photo looks western to me…Montana maybe…just a hunch. I have rarely seen a photo like this one. She looks to be maybe 18 years old? What do you think? The photo was probably taken in the 1880’s to 1890’s. I bet she ordered that material for the dress.
Thanks for stopping by.
