WELL DRESSED AND TROUBLED IN REDRUTH, ENGLAND

TROUBLED_0010

I must admit that the woman in this cabinet card photograph may not be troubled, but she sure looks troubled. She also looks well dressed in her high collar suit, leather gloves, and monstrosity of a hat covered with feathers and ribbons. The photographer, Henry Opie opened his studio in Redruth, England in 1889. He expanded his business and eventually had studios in Truro, Falmouth, and Helston. The reverse of the image has an identifying inscription stating “Grandma Robertson”.
