Back by popular demand ! Photo circa 1900

Click on the photo to get some of the story.

I suppose that was taken with a box brownie - perhaps a little later than 1900, if that was the case. Not much later, judging by her dress, (which, is slightly translucent, if you go to the original). As it was taken in an age of formal portraits, it's one of the most intriguing photos I've ever seen. Who was she? Who was the photographer? What was their relationship? What had they been doing that day to inspire this?

One my favourite old photos. Ever.
