I found this image on the internet. It is a compelling photographic image of an unknown woman taken in mid-nineteenth century America. I am interested in her beaded cuffs not having seen any such decorations on garments of the past. Does anyone have an idea of where and who the woman might have been? I used this image as a character in a novel I wrote. I called her Miriam.
