Ella Seall

Here we have a post-1900 image of a lovely lady named Ella Seall. This name is written on the back, but also in one corner on the back, in pencil it says ESM. Perhaps Ella married someone whose name began with an M. Ella is wearing a beautiful dress of white with 3/4 sleeves and a few ruffles across the bodice and around the skirt. I believe this to be from 1900-1910 based on the beautiful Edwardian styling of the pigeon-breast blouse. Her hair is styled in the poufy bouffant of the Gibson Girl, and she is wearing eye glasses. Perhaps this was her graduation photo or a “coming out” portrait before the debutante ball.

The photographer was F. Martin of Circleville, OH.
