    1850-1870: A black-and-white photograph of three women seated in a row with their arms linked together at the elbows and their hands placed in their laps right-over-left. All three women wear dresses made from a dark fabric with light-colored polka dots. Each wears a small white collar of slightly different styles. The woman in the center and the woman at the right facing side have gold rings on their fingers. All three women wear their hair pulled up in the back of the head. The photograph is housed behind decorative gold foil inside a black leather-covered wood case with a missing lid.
