Photo on cotton

Early photographers were artists in that they experimented with different chemical compositions on different materials to create images. Here is an image of lady all dressed up on a cotton, maybe a flour bag, from the Beemer family collection of Clare, Mich. that Cody found during his internship. I'm guessing it dates to when she graduated from CMU in 1909 at age 23. Hello Mary Alice Smalley Beemer (1886-1968)!
