Description
This unidentified photograph of a young woman, possibly from Mount Pleasant, was provided by Linda Guest.
Notes
The reference on the back of the card to a "New Process" that allowed an exposure time of one second suggests that it may be an early dry-plate gelatin or gelatin film print, which would date the photo to the 1870s or 1880s. It may have been printed on albumen paper.
