My Great Grandmother in one arm chair late 1800's for AnnaB
This was a parlor chair with one arm to allow for women's dress to fit in chair . I believe the chair pre dates the photo as she is not in a huge dress but was born in 1878 and this appears to be her at about 18 years of age . The photo has been enhanced to see chair more clear by Phil Morris.
I can tell you she had a hard life as a farmer and mother of 13 children . She died at age 50 of cancer.
