Was she grumpy?

This is an 1860’s vintage CdV that I call Grumpy Girl. She does not look happy to be having her likeness made at all! On the very right edge of the photo, you can just see the elbow and leg of the adult who was with her. Considering you can see both the elbow and the leg in the same area, it is likely a man, as a woman’s skirt would have been quite wide in this era. This girl’s expression makes you wonder if it was close to nap time.

    She does look grumpy, perhaps it is the shoes that are making her that way. I would get grumpy if I had to wear those shoes:)
