Carte de Visite: Little Women

BUTLER, Artist & Photogrpher
No. 9, St. Mary's Butts
Reading [England]

I bought the carte de visite specifically because it seemed to echo Louisa May Alcott's Little Women which was published in 1868, shortly after the War. The women, actually British, wear crinolines and loose outer coats of the 1860s. Someone--either photographer or owner--has tinted the picture.
