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.

Such a great photo, and I too have so many photos that I wish they'd written clearer on !

Wow, not sure why my name didn't appear, and why it showed anonymous, (sometimes happens when I'm on my cell phone) but I know this was my comment, and I still have the same thoughts, about how important it is to write on our photos!
