Portrait of a Young Woman Holding an Umbrella 
1875 (ca) 
  
Ambrotype 
3.5 x 2.75 in (89 x 70 mm) 
  
Charles Schwartz Ltd 
 
LL/23102 
  
A very strong Ambrotype, in which sharp details (such as the woman's "whiteface," wooden Geta [platform] shoes, and dress) are clearly visible. This image was most likely taken by an anonymous street photographer, and is a marvelous mixture of candid and stylized qualties. Her face appears, perfectly framed by the dark, open umbrella a striking and rather unique touch.
