I find this an interesting photo. I am wondering about what year it was taken. I would like to see the rest of the dress and the locket.

I got a note from him and the family, they were excited, especially his mother in law, because she was able to identify several members of her family. He said he will keep in touch and give me the final results. It is really good to make someones family history with pictures that were found.
I told him that I think that anyone with an interest and working knowledge of Genealogy, would look and hope to find the family for the photos.

I did a search for the Elite Photography Studio but did not find one is Des Moines, IA. What I liked was the sleeve on her dress. I can not tell if it a Leg O Mutton sleeve or some variation. It could be a covering of sleeve with a little cape? Leg O Mutton sleeves appeared in the mid 1890’s and were gone about 1906. The bodice is fancy and the skirt is plain.
