Description
Carte-de-visite of Miss Thiele shown in half portrait. Her body is facing the camera, but her head is turned one quarter to her left and she looks off camera. Her hair is gathered at the back of her head and hanging down in large ringlets. She wears a dark colored bodice with a ruffled white lace collar and a white ruffled ribbon at her front neck. A chatelaine is pinned at her front neck with a watch visible and a longer chain hanging down with an object at the end that is out of frame.
The photograph is housed in the album 2017.30. The album page has a triple-lined, gold border framing the print. Handwritten in graphite inside the bottom border of the printed frame of the album page is the text "Miss Thiele".
