    Updating.... Old photo of woman with tiny waist. Writing on the backside is Hungarian. Drága jó anyám fiatalasszony kori fényképe.” translated means "a picture of my dear mother as a young wife." Many thanks to all your help.

      It looks like one of those dead people they used to photograph after death. You might look at one of those sites.

      It’s Hungarian and begins with “dear good mother”.

      Yes it looks like an Umbrella and Gloves

      She looks very much alive to me. A tiny waist, pulled tight with a corset, was a fashion trend…I’m glad that’s over!

      NOT a post mortem. She was alive when photographed. Agree, umbrella in her hand.

      Lovely picture ,but I think the translation is
      “there going to have to pry ,
      the umbrella from my cold dead hands”
