She is identified by handwritten notes on the back …

… but she is still a bit mysterious, since I can't figure out where she lived or what she was to any Rossow or Harms, that her photo would have ended up in Minnie's steamer trunk.

(I notice that the 1891 Plat Book shows the land just north of what would eventually be the Rossows' Wisconsin Street farm was owned by a Michael Torpy … hmmm.)
