Description
A street view of a small one story house set behind a picket fence. A young woman is sitting on the steps to the front porch, reading. There is a flowering tree in between the fence and the front of the house, and rose bushes growing up in front of the porch on the left.
Probably taken in California? One of forty-eight glass plate negatives originally housed together with a note by Latta reading "Frank Robinson Merced Area Misc. Unidentified." More than half of the images feature the World's Columbian Exposition, held in Chicago in 1893, or the California Midwinter International Exposition, held in San Francisco in 1894, hence the suggested date.
