Unidentified girl with book


Black and white image of a young woman with shoulder-length hair. Her hair is pulled back from her face and held on top of her head with a printed ribbon tied into a bow with leaves and greenery included. She sits on a slat-backed chair, and one hand supports a book upright in her lap, which is covered by an apron tied at her waist. Her dress is gingham, with long sleeves, shoulders, and no corset; a white collar is fastened around the shirt collar and a large, plaid ribbon tied into a bow is affixed to it. There is also gold leaf painted at the conjunction of the white collar and ribbon.
