It's clear that these two pictures are portraits of the same woman, wearing the same dress, on the same day. The name is not clear but seems to be Berthine Blake. In the past it has been read as both Berthine Black and Bertha Block. These prints were made from the original glass plate negatives, which are housed at Virginia Historical Society.
