This charming elderly lady was photographed between 1890 – 1900. Was she a mother? She appears to be rather well-off: she is in a large bedroom with carpeting, furniture, and artwork. Her crutches are on the stool in front of her, but it’s impossible to know what injury she had. This photo was taken by Charles Henry Currier.

What do you make of her facial expression?
