McAdam's Gallery (Wenona, Ill.)
Carte de visite
J. Cosmas Vintage Photography
They seem very isolated from their surroundings, but there's no doubt as to the bond between them. They're wearing identical boots, white stockings, dresses, ribbons around their necks, and also ribbons as a "crown" in their hair. Note how each girl's free arm is not hanging by their side, but held stiffly at an angle against their skirts. On the verso of mount is written in a period hand; "Loulie A. and Laura A. Diehl / 15 yrs. Age". Studio mark of "McAdam's Gallery, Wenona, Ill".
