Jumping into the 20th century, here we have a gorgeous little girl in her finery. The dress looks almost sheer and the ribbons from her bonnet are so large they look a bit like a kimono sleeve. The dress bodice is quite frilled with wide ruffles at the shoulders. Not to be outdone by her clothing, this little miss has bright eyes and an eager expression that makes you want to just scoop her up and kiss her!
The photographer was G. W. (or possibly C. W.) Smith at 26 Gill Street, Exeter, NH.
