Woman photographed by a traveling photographer

The hair of the woman was poorly touched up by the photographer or the original owner of the photograph.

In the “Collector’s Guide to 19th Century U.S. Traveling Photographers” by Robert O. Brown.  There is an indication that this photographer had locations in Keokuk and Manchester, Iowa… Brown thinks the blank line after “New Photograph Parlors,” is probably an indication of an itinerant photographer, although apparently was set up with an address, at least in the two towns above. A big Thanks goes to Jerilyn Marshall for this info.
