This photo was found in an antique shop in Fredericksburg, Texas, and doesn't seem to have strayed too far from its original source. The photographer named on the bottom of the card is "T. A. HINSON, San Marcos, Texas." 

It seems to have been given to an artist from which a painted portrait was to have been made. Now that's just my own guess, but here's what's written in faint pencil on the back:

"WC Oilette Bust, light brown hair, brown eyes, dress white, fair complexion W. H. BOHNN San Marcos, Tex."

I'm only assuming that her surname was BOHNN, or that someone named W. H. BOHNN had commissioned her portrait.

There's also the possibility that the name was actually BOHNER, but the handwriting is not distinct. 

I don't have any more information about the BOHNN or BOHNER family, but if you can provide additional information, I'd love to post it on his page.
