Cowgirl or Actress?
Another of the unique photos found among the "orphan" photographs of Paducah is this young woman in a cowgirl outfit holding a whip. Her outfit even includes what appears to be a gunbelt. It seems likely that she was an actress, either on the stage or in one of the many wild west shows touring the country in the latter part of the 19th century.
