Annie Oakley's Niece Featured in Photo on National Geographic's Tumblr

Sonja Etzell stumbled upon the photo below at National Geographic's "Found" tumblr.

The photo is from April, 1955, and shows Annie Oakley's niece showing memorabilia to a young woman who is dressed as Annie Oakley.

According to the page, the "Found" site is:
a curated collection of photography from the National Geographic archives. In honor of our 125th anniversary, we are showcasing photographs that reveal cultures and moments of the past. Many of these photos have never been published and are rarely seen by the public.
We hope to bring new life to these images by sharing them with audiences far and wide. Their beauty has been lost to the outside world for years and many of the images are missing their original date or location.

If you have insights to share about an image, please let us know.
This is just the beginning of a great adventure. We will be adding new voices, stories, and artifacts as we go. We look forward to sharing this experience with everyone, and hope you make FOUND your home for inspiration and wonder.
Thanks, Sonja for the sweet find. Anyone know any more about the photo itself?
