Side by Side
Unconventionally-posed CDV-format albumen print of girl next to her doll, who appears to be popping up from behind a chair, circa 1870 by I. H. Jordon, Brockport, NY. Applied color in red added to headdress of both girl and her doll as well as in a few other spots. With photographer's imprint on reverse reading "I. H. Jordon, Photographer, Brockport, N. Y. / Successor to J. H. Kent." Price: $55. ( Inventory# id796b2 )
The similarly of pose and hand-coloring on these two companions strengthens the impression that, over time, some dolls grow to resemble their owners.
