New to My Collection: A Girl and Her Best Friend, 1864 or 1865

A young girl who wears a cross around her neck cradles a doll in her arms. On the back of the mount is pasted an internal revenue service stamp that has been hand cancelled with the date “Oct 9.” As these stamps were used by the government to pay for the war from September 1864 to September 1866, this photograph can be dated to October 9, 1864 or 1865.

This portrait is now available on PinterestTumblr, and Flickr:
