E.T. Braaten was the photographer in Gol, Hall (Norway)
Bergit has lovely trim on the bottom of her gown, her gloves and on the bodice of her gown. When I first looked at this CDV I though oh an old lady…not so..she might be 20-25 years old.
Update from Dr. Jeff
This seems to be a Bergit K. Gurigaard who emigrated from Ål in Hallingdal to St. Peter MN in 1890. She was then 26 years old and unmarried.
Update from LarsI :
This is probably the same referred to here:
"Birgit Knutsdtr. Gurigard Lybeck 21.06. 1863-1905
Gm Andreas A. Lybeck og busett i Minnesota. Barn: Adolf ; Oskar ; Kristine.
Andreas og sønene reiste til Sylvan Lake, Alta i Canada i 1914. "
Translation: 21.06.1863-1905. Married to Andreas Lybeck and lived in Minnesota. Children: Adolf, Oskar, Kristine. Andreas and his sons moved to Sylvan Lake, Alta, Canada, in 1914.
There is (I think) only one farm called Gurigard in Norway, in Leveld in Ål in Hallingdal (not far from Gol in Hallingdal, in the mountains in south of Norway).
The photographer worked as a photographer in Gol from about 1890 to 1906.
