    This 19th century sepia-toned carte de visite shows a young girl in her Communion outfit with a tiered white dress, white veil, and flowered headdress.  She is holding what appears to be a photograph in her left hand, which leans against a decorative chair with a needlepoint back.  She is facing away from the camera in a three-quarter view.  Her gaze is intense.  It is possible that she is dead, as one can see a stand used for these type of photographs behind her high button shoes.  The back of the card is printed:  "W.R. Babcock's Fine Art Gallery, 235 Summit Street, Toledo, O."  In very good condition; slightly dirty border.
