This is an unknown lady in the Reiss family album from Kentucky
« on: Monday 11 March 19 14:56 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
This is an unidentified lady from the  Family Album passed down from my mother. It may have been taken in New Orleans, Louisiana, where my Great Grandmother, Lelia Cecilia Meilleur, was born.

I would very much appreciate it if someone would be able to give me an idea of when it might have been taken.

It's a tintype (magnet attracted) appx. 2x3". The original is very dark- like a negative, I lightened it some.


Thank You  :)

There's a possibility it's around late 1870's but 1880 give or take a couple of years is about right.
