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 was most delightful about this was the way you took us on a journey of discovery when that mail arrived. The little details about how you even put it off for a bit before you savoured the information inside the envelope made it all the more fascinating.

I have had the experience of opening an envelope to see a copy of my grandparents' marriage certificate, and it is a real thrill to be sure.

Very enjoyable.
