Lizzie Brown Photos

Just had to share some photos of Lizzie Brown:
Lizzie Brown, aged 17

"I had an unusually heavy suit of hair and no one had ever combed it but Maria when I was home."

A note written by Mamie: "Mama in a red cloth jacket embroidered in white, white shirred shirtwaist, jacket had a fan tail in back, $5 to Mrs. Jones for embroidering it. Taken at Harrisonville while at home on vacation from school in Independence."

With Aunt Aggie and John Glascosk. My dress is shirred on the shoulders, the style called "The Southern Girl." 1865
