Girl circa 1830's

87 Girl circa 1830's, 6 x 6 inches, Paper Plate Lithograph, $60
So with the little curlie Q on the right side, and the silhouette of ringlets under it, I can totally see the girl in this hairstyle as well as the tilt of her head (although it is not present in this image).  Perhaps this girl is on the verge of womenhood, not quite a child anymore but not yet a woman... as I continue to look at the image I can start to image how this girl is dressed and perhaps even some of her mannerisms. Funny how just a few clues can lead one to invision the whole person.
