Vintage Orphan Photo # 99 SEPIA SATURDAY ~ EARLY 1800's PHOTO / PORTRAIT ~ WISH THIS WAS MY ANCESTOR
Today I went to a estate sale and in the garage on a shelf I found this photo. Right next to it was another of a gentleman and as I looked at this one a man spotted me and grabbed that one in case it was a treasure. Darn it next time if I spot two old photos I will grab and then look and check out the price.
Well I got one great old Sepia photo and will resell it on eBay. Sadly there is not name but she is really something in her period dress and bonnet. Not sure of when this would of been taken but I will guess early 1800's and hope that some of you can help me with the date.
She appears mid age to older and with a very serious face with down turn mouth. Photo measures 11 inches by 13 1/2 inches so would of been in a frame and hung on a wall at one time.
I found other items at the estate and church sale but this was the only old photo.
I will be sharing this at Sepia Saturday
Hope that you enjoy this wonderful vintage photo and thanks for stopping by.. Grace
