this is a old very large fredricks new york photograph,, hand colored.
i was wondering if anyone could identify the woman circa 1860s or 1870s. Is on a hilltop surrounded by buildings,, which i havent shown, if you need to look at the buildings i could post another. Just want to identify her. Fredricks was a famous photographer in the Matthew Brady era. This is one of the larges about 22 by 18 watercolor images he made. The watercolor artist is listed also,, just cant read.

    Charles DeForest Fredericks, 1823 - 1894. I would try searching watercolorist of that era. I would love to see the buildings.
