C-004  The Lovely Mrs. Johnson by Whipple

Fine portrait by the master, Whipple of Boston.  In
pencil on the reverse, "Johnson."   Scarce to find
images of smiling people from this period.

She's holding a letter or a note.  Must be good news.

Medium intensity albumen print on standard carte de
visite mount.  Mount has been trimmed to facilitate
album inserttion.
