This is a CdV or Cartes d’ Visite or visiting card. I purchased it at the Antique shop in Royalton Minnesota.
The Photographer is McDougall in Boothbay Maine. I did find a McDougall who was a photographer during the 1917-1918 time period, perhaps his Father was a photographer also.
This photo might be from the late 1890’s..the button up shoes and the pleats around the bottom edge of the dress all say 1890’s to me. She sure is a cute little girl.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again
