An older lady with a cute hat

In my collection, I have a few tin types.  Today, I’m going to share one of an older lady in a cute hat.  I can’t really see her dress well enough to try to date the photo so we will just have to enjoy it for its own self.SAM_1637

These things are fiendishly difficult to photograph.  Use a flash and all you see is white glare, don’t use a flash and it is hard to see.  The same thing happens with cabinet cards but not to such a great degree.

The poor dear looks so gaunt in the face…I should like to feed her some ice-cream and send her to bed for a nice long nap.  She does have a darling little hat though.
