Today’s CdV features a lovely young lady named Rose McEllinney Montgomery, with quite a lot going on with her ensemble. Her hair is in a combination of fat braids to the back and small ones in a coil to the front. Next, she seems to be wearing some kind of paletot or drape over a blouse – you can just see her white collar sticking out of her neckline. This garment has pleats on its pleats! There’s an ornate brooch pin and then one of these “lariat” style necklaces. I’m going to have to do some more research on the necklace because I have seen many of these in antique photos.
Rose selected Montfort & Hill of Burlington as her photographers. Unfortunately, they did not choose to name their state on the backmark.
