This postcard by an unknown photographer shows a young Mexican woman standing alone beneath a tree. By nature of being a postcard, this image was intended to depict life in Mexico to the outside world. The woman is wearing a long dress with a floral print and a plaid shawl. The dress includes many details such as a floral pattern, ruffles near the hem, and a lace draping at the neckline. She is wearing lace-up shoes and carrying a basket with a woven floral motif. Her hair is pulled back in a braid or low bun, and shows off the earrings dangling next to her face. Her clothing would suggest that this is a special occasion or that she is going somewhere important like church or a wedding. As she leans against the tree she is looking down and smiling. She appears to be happy about something. She is carrying a basket but does not appear to be gathering anything. This image raises several questions like where is she going? Who is she and why is she so dressed up?
