Girl with flowers in her hair

What it is:

Carte de visite (CDV) measuring 2.5 x 4.25 inches.

What I know about it:

Photographer is E. W. Hurd of North Adams, Massachusetts.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.


She has earrings, a necklace and a brooch, and yet it’s the flowers in her hair that stand out to me as the bit of decoration that is unusual and pretty.  I also like the nice framing effect.  (I suspect the irregularly trimmed corners are that way to fit an actual frame.)  I mentioned in a previous post that I mysteriously have a disproportionate number of photos from North Adams in my collection, strange since they came from a variety of sources.  This is another one.  It’s one of the photos that was a gift from my  mother.
