This is the photograph of a property owner, likely a no-nonsense
landlady or farmhouse wife. Her difficult life has caused her to choose
to appear in this once-in-a-lifetime photo op as a stern and moral
matron. She has little time for feminine intrigues, and she has chosen
to cut and style her hair in the most convenient way, that of a man.
Even the bangs have been spread apart and there are no hints of curls or
anything youthful. She is a young wife with a starched collar and
limited means, but her adoring husband has encouraged her to have the
photograph taken for their mantlepiece.
