    A beautiful girl wearing a beautiful outfit. Photo by Wilhelm Mehlert, Gluckstadt, Germany. On Google I found one of his photos of a sunset on the Elbe for sale, and it was dated circa 1890.

      1980? Do you mean 1890?

      Lovely image. I remember those muffs; we still used them in the 50's.

      one of my dolls in 1959 had a white rabbit fur stole and muff lined in satin. We went out for dinner at a chinese restaurant and when we got home, the stole was missing. A quick phone call and drive back Frank's Rice Bowl and it was back with the doll again. I'd left it on the seat. Since I grew up in Southern California, there was no need for me to have one!

      A lovely coat....it looks very warm. Her pigtails are perfectly positioned for that hat. A great photo.

      It's amazing to think this girl's whole life has been and gone, and now, thanks to your efforts, this little slice of time has been saved from being forgotten! Such a gorgeous photo. I love the bows in her hair, and her hat!
