  1. Look at those huge buttons, do you think she was wearing a uniform? Also, I've always loved the name Flora, I wonder why.

  3. I didn't even notice those big buttons before reading the comments. I sort of did but I really noticed her eyes.

  4. 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!

  6. 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.
