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.

I have many dressmakers in my family but only recently found a milliner. Sadly, no photographs though. This is a gem. I read the post you linked, but where is the other photo you are using for comparison? Hats were such fun - now all we see are ballcaps worn backwards which is so unflattering. Is there a "Carnival of hats" or "Millinery Monday"? I am so out of the blogging mainstream that I wouldn't know.

I do think that the woman on the end is the same woman as the one on the find-a-grave site.
