(2 1/2 x 4 1/8 In) This is an original antique carte de visite photograph from the 1870s. It shows a Victorian girl dressed in a long veil, her hair in tight ringlets posing for her Confirmation day portrait with a table full of house plants, a bible and is that a knife or a folding fan hanging off her waist? The portrait was taken by photographer A. H. Gentzel at 315 West Twelfth Street, Chicago, Illinois.
