Photographs such as this show the pride girls in their mid teens had in their long tresses.
A girl might wear her long hair either as a single plait "Flapper" or, as here, held at the nape of her neck by a Butterfly Bow.
She wore knee length skirts.
From the age of Seventeen her dress length would drop to her ankles and her long hair would be lifted up upon her head to create one of the adult styles. She was no longer a child.
These portraits are often taken on or near a girls seventeenth birthday and are frequently dated.
