This is a Cabinet Card from the antique shop in Brainerd Minnesota.
Davies of Alexandria Minn was the photographer.
Presented to Dorthea Pederson for having the most headmarke in her class. Bertha Rorlaug/Borlaug? Teacher
I had no luck finding the photographer. I will guess that this photo was taken in the early 1880’s, her skirt has a pleated edge, and more than likely a bustle, her jacket is tight fitting and is trimmed with many buttons and also has a high white collar. She is wearing a pair of dark fingerless gloves.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
