A pretty young woman with dark hair and dark eyes poses for her portrait by a photographer named E. C. Brown whose studio was located on Douglas Avenue in Ellsworth, Kansas.  The woman in this photograph is wearing a striking dress with a couple of floral displays pinned to it. She is wearing formal white gloves and is holding some papers.  Her dress looks like a wedding dress but it is not likely that she would be holding papers in a wedding portrait. Perhaps a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery will share an opinion in regard to the specific context of this image.

  1. My first hit is that it is a graduation photo. Many girls in that era had lovely white dresses for their graduation ceremonies and photos.
