There are a lot of unknowns attached to this cabinet card portrait of a lovely woman in a dark dress with puffy sleeves.  Who is the photographer? Where was the photograph taken? Who is the subject? The answers to these questions have been lost to history. The woman projects a strong appearance and has pretty eyes.

  1. The simplicity of her dress…the lack of a hat, which was de riguer at this time for those with even middle class stature…. Well, my guess is that she’s Irish, from her very Irish bone structure and features. – Also, that hair: naturally curled – maybe red? – Do you think she might be an Irish domestic? Very common during this time period. – Maybe she’s sent one on to her mother in the Emerald Isles. Mother can gaze at her girl while she sits and darns in front of the fire. – Thanks CC: a sweet presence.
