Margarite Amestoy working on the Ranch

Margarite AmestoyThis is an unusually candid shot of Margarite Amestoy going about her daily chores while watched by an attentive dog. This image was taken around 1905. The annotation says "Margarite Larre Amestoy (Mrs Peter). (Mary Mariquita)." The sense of that annotation is not completely clear, though it probably means that the French speaking Amestoys called Mariquita Margarite.
