Portrait of unidentified woman with beehive hairstyle

Description

Black and white portrait of a young woman in what appears to be a formal gown. She wears her hair upswept in a bee-hive hairstyle with large curls visible on the surface. Museum records do not identify the woman, but this image was part of the Herbert E. McMullen bequest, and appeared to be one of several intended to document hairstyles of the day. McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other images of daily life in the area.
