Sepia Saturday 200: She made hats

This is a photo I estimate to be circa 1868-1875 of the millinery shop owned and operated by my great-great grandmother, Mary Emily (Conner) Meek in Grenada Co., MS. (Click here to read more about her.)

From comparing the only known photo I have of her to this one, I think grandmama was the lady seated to the right of the post.

But I can't be sure.

This is a Sepia Saturday post, republished on 26 Oct 2013 for Sepia Saturday 200. Head over there for more wonderful photos.

It's me again commenting on today's repost of this

Hello, not sure how to get my name on here, but it's Karen S. and I'm commenting on your repost for our book. Excellent photo choice. It's a genuine sepia photo!
