c. 1876 John Cornelius Marikle CDV Photo, Dakota to California USA
On reverse: "Johnie Marikle" is handwritten in early dip pen black ink. Photo type: CDV Carte de Visite Photograph, Victorian. Photographer: Unmarked, Unknown.
This is an amazingly beautiful portrait by a very skilled, but unknown photographer, preumably taken in Lincoln, South Dakota. In the Victorian era, boys wore frocks with pleated skirts, or tunics and blouses over pleated skirts, until the age of three or five. Often you will also see long striped socks, as Johnny wears here. he has a silk ribbon around his neck, a gingham dress, freshly combed hair, and sits on a woolen blanket. Often the mother would be behind that blanket helping the child with the long 30 second exposure. This is a wonderful and interesting photo.

I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint.
