Antique Photograph Cabinet Card of Young St. Louis Missouri Woman (c.1893)
A young woman from St. Louis, Missouri...
We think every face tells a story. What was this young woman's story?
Maybe she married at a very young age (to the man in our next shop listing). They met when she was just 17. He was a distinguished gentleman who wore immpecible pinstripe suits, who came into her father's store each day. She smiled at him every time they passed each other, until one day he stopped and chatted with her. His voice was low and mesmerizing, and he made her feel like she was the most beautiful girl in the world. One day, they went for a walk, and he took her hand in his... and asked her to become his bride! She wept happy tears, and then immediately began to plan their wedding ceremony...
What do you think her story was?
