This is a CdV from  the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

A little girl all dressed up!

CdV cute girl Ohio DL Antiques back

J. E. Smith of 38 1/2 Market Street of Springfield Ohio was the photographer.

This CdV is most likely from around  the late 1870’s to 1880.  The card has rounded corners, she has curls and her hair is pulled back.  I wonder if we can see a bit of a bustle at the back of that dress? 

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. Such a lovely little girl!

  2. I was wondering about that. Must have been a special outfit for that young lady!

    Hope someone with roots in Springfield, Ohio, stops by and sees this. Oh, for just the thought of a simple inscription of a name....

  3. She looks like an Alice to me... :)

  4. It also looks like she has a little hat on. Very cute!

  5. Her hair is so pretty.
