In this photograph of Sophie Christiansen, in Guilford VT, she is standing in front a large, gnarled birch tree, with what appears to be a thoughtful look on her face. Sophie appears to be in her 30’s or 40’s and is in a black hat with a white stripe or ribbon around the center. She is wearing a fur coat, with a double row of large, round buttons. Under this coat is either a dress or skirt, coming down to her toes, either black or grey. Her toes are not visible, though—Sophie’s skirt/dress covers them. Her gloveless hands lay straight by her sides. The weather appears to be chilly, because of the clothes Sophie is wearing, but sunny also—the lighting is bright and the ground is strewn with dry leaves.
