A wonderful turn of the century portrait of a young lady walking up a pair of steps in a park by a large and wide railing in front of some trees, wearing a yellow bonnet tied to her head with a very large pink ribbon that is tied to the top of her head and wrapped around her neck, as the ends flap in the wind.
To compliment her bonnet, she is also wearing a blue off shoulder silk or satin dress accented with a pink rose that she is touching at the center of her dress.
She is also wearing full length gloves with one being tan in color and the other being a dark grey color, she is also wearing a 5 tier choker pearl necklace, and foldable fan that is hanging by a cord off her right arm; and a sheer white shawl that wraps around her left arm around her back the around her hips.
