Henriette Moretz Dwarf Girl

Henriette Moretz

Dwarf girl
carte de visite, 4 x 2.5 inches, circa 1880
photographer: J. R. Applegate, Vine Street Galleries, Cor. Vine and Eighth Streets, Philadelphia

I believe this tiny young lady to be Henriette Moretz, who often appeared in photographs with her mother. I have seen another image in which Henriette, wearing the same or a similar dress, claims to be 16-years-old, 22 inches tall and 36 pounds. I think it likely that Henriette was actually much younger at the time of this photograph than her alleged 16 years.
