We cannot find any record of Nina's death or burial. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here. This photo was found in Berkshire County, Massachusetts.; A beautiful old 1880's close up image of Nina, about 20 years old, who sports an unusual spiked brush cut, with very beautiful thick hair, she looks very hip and contemporary! The dark background is unusual on a cabinet card photo. A beautiful intimate portrait.
