(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 95: Emily Auble as young girl

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

I managed to scan about 100 family photographs in the Scanfest in January, and have converted the scanned TIF files to smaller JPGs, cropped and rotated as best I can. Many of these were "new" to my digital photograph collection.

Here is a photograph from the Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

I think that this is a photograph of my grandmother, Emily Kemp Auble, born 19 August 1899 in Chicago, Illinois, daughter of Charles and Georgianna (Kemp) Auble. I'm guessing that Emily is age 8 to 10 in this photograph. If so, then it was probably taken in Chicago, where the family resided until after 1910. In this photograph, her hair was not parted in the middle like the toddler photo posted last week.

Note the bow in her hair. I have several other pictures of her with a similar bow, including the pre-wedding photograph shown in this post. Note that in this latter photo, she does have her hair parted in them iddle. Perhaps the part in the middle was made for more formal photographs? I need more photos to confirm that supposition, I think.
