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.

What a splendid photograph, I wish I could enlarge it! To have a great grandmother who made hats too; were any 'hat stories' handed down with the picture?

It is wonderful! Your Grandmother looks so prim and pretty. That little girl needed a hat the most, she doesn't have hardly any hair.

Thanks for showing this one to us.
