A genealogy blog focused on families settling in East Tennessee and the Northern Neck of Virginia with explorations of Rusyn roots.
Look at those huge buttons, do you think she was wearing a uniform? Also, I've always loved the name Flora, I wonder why.
I wondered the same thing when I saw the buttons! Love the hairdo. Thanks for sharing!
I didn't even notice those big buttons before reading the comments. I sort of did but I really noticed her eyes.
You should ask Maureen Taylor what she think of the dress she is wearing and whether it might be a uniform??What a great photo!Lucie
Love this photo.
Absolutely terrific photo....what a gal!
I love seeing this through other eyes. It's so familiar to me that I don't think I've really looked at in years. Thank you all!The buttons are huge and I've not idea why. It's hard to imagine she's in a uniform - small town east TN in the 1880s - what would it be? Something to consider.
