CDV of Child in Fancy Getup of Various Patterns

Sadly, I have no idea of the identity of this child [a boy, perhaps?], other than that this Carte de Visite was found with a collection of photographs of people from Iowa and surrounding states. 

I'm slowly working through the collection - you can search my blog archive of  September and October 2010 for surnames of the people in identified photos.  Wouldn't it be neat if someone recognized the outfit from a family album!

The tunic is very appealing, with its vertical and diagonal stripes - I wish I knew the color scheme.   The stockings, though, are a bit jarring, at least to me.

Hope you've enjoyed this peek at a child of the 1870s/1880s in fancy dress.  Thanks for stopping by!
