little bo peep
So, I went to the swap meet this weekend and spent way more than I had intended too, but I got a lot of great cabinet cards including this little beauty.
I'm almost entirely sure that this is a girl from her little bows, though I suppose I could be wrong. It must have been a relatively creative photographer who took this shot seeing as he has a shepherds' staff as a prop and had the little girl looking over the side of his hair rather than sitting straight in it.
It all definitely adds character to this portrait and her bright eyes and sweet little smile don't hurt either. Unfortunately, though, there's no information whatsoever on the backing or the reverse, not even the name of the photographer's studio or the city that it was taken in.
