Mystery Monday~ The Unknown Lady

Monday, July 22, 2013




 Yet another Mystery photo from Great Grandma Mary Bella Watson's photo album.  I tried to magnify the photo in hopes I could make out the title of the book she is holding, but was not able to read it , the book may have only been used for a prop, but one never knows. Dangling from her long necklace appears to be a small key, the style of dress I'm guessing 1880's?  I would love to learn who this mystery lady is.~
