    I am not sure but by the veil and dress it appears this is a woman in mourning. She looks sad to me as well. after the Civil War and during that war can you just imagine the staggering number of widows!! Taken by T. Graham, Pittsburgh,PA.c. 1860s-70s

      Thanks to the 5 nice CW friends who took a look at this antique photo. So far no opinions at all whether this is a mourning photo--or not!
