Little Miss Priss- 1860's CDV (Ottawa Illinois)

Even in early photography, there were times children didn't want to cooperate, as this little girls face reveals. She looks to be on the verge of a tantrum. It could sometimes take up to a minute for the exposure to take, so it was probably hard for her to hold her pose. I love her expression, it's priceless! It's rare to find such an expressive photograph from the early 19th century. I nicknamed her 'Little Miss Priss'. She looks to be around three to four years old. This carte de visite photograph is circa 1860-1870. It was taken in Ottawa, Illinois. 
I just had to make her into a meme, lol! ;) Feel free to share! 
I recently acquired this antique CDV photo album. The front cover is inscribed 1865. I'll share a post about it soon, see the video below! (Click here to view if embedded video isn't showing
