Awwww! Well, it looks like this little girl is having kind of “a moment.” She was unhappy about something when the photo was taken. I love the dress (was it handmade?) with the contrasting sash-like piece and the matching cuffs and waistband. She wears a hair bow also, and dark leggings. No identifying information on the back; probably the name “Bell” was the dealer who was selling this card at some point. There are no clues to the location, but we might think Midwestern farm country due to the flat expanse that we have a glimpse of beyond the well-built looking porch (note the rough-hewn stone steps and support) and house. There’s a nice little school-house type desk and seat in front of the window, and if you look closer you’ll notice how the iron scroll work of the desk is similar to the shadow showing for the porch bracket, and how the shadow just happens to be placed (as if by design) “attached” to the window frame.
Divided back, unused, Real Photo Postcard. AZO stamp box with all four triangles pointing up, circa 1907 – 1918.
