SWEET LITTLE GIRL AND HER PARASOL IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

A sweet little girl poses for her portrait at the Rothschild studio in Chicago, Illinois. She is holding a pretty parasol and her curls are covered by a large bonnet. The little girl is identified on the reverse of the photograph as Florence Peterson. It is also noted that the studio was located on State Street and Van Buren. The studio was within the A. M. Rothschild Department Store and the store was opened at the aforementioned address in 1881. The store was bought out by Marshall Fields in 1923.  Research was unsuccessful at uncovering information about little Miss Peterson because “Florence Peterson” was a relatively common name in Chicago at the time this image was produced.
