Carte-de-visite photograph of a 3/4 length view of a woman thought to be Louisa May Alcott. The subject is wearing a long, striped dress, and is seated with her hands folded in her lap, where she also holds a newspaper. Her dark hair is pulled back and her eyes are raised and focused on a location off to the upper right hand side of the card. Stiff photographer's mount with a double ruled gilt border, bearing the printed identification of Brady, New York beneath the image. The verso also contains the printed attribution of Brady's National Photographic Portrait Galleries, Broadway & Tenth Street, New York. Dated on verso in ink in an unidentified hand, "3 April 1865." A little worn and soiled; uniformly toned, but good to very good overall. (Item ID: 17948)
