Cabinet Photo of a Teen-aged Girl with long Hair from Easton Pennsylvania
There is nothing unusual about this Cabinet Photo, I just like it. It's a formal studio portrait of a teen aged girl, standing with her hand on one of those fancy couches whose name I can never remember. She has quite long hair draped over her right shoulder. Her dress is not even quite ankle length, which, along with the way she's wearing her hair, was probably an indicator of youth and an unmarried status at the time (probably 1870s).
The photographer was McCabe, located at 429 Northampton Street, Easton, PA. I was not able to find out any specific information about the photographer, and there is nothing to indicate who the subject of the photo was. It's just a nice picture.
