(Note: LOC caption is "Col. Allen." I saw a photo naming him James P. McIvor. I can't find the source now but I was very confident with the McIvor identification.)

I like it. More modern. She was ahead of her time! lol
Yes, she was ahead of her time, and it is a unique hairstyle for the period. I wonder, was the photo intended as an ordinary portrait? Or was it an actress's photo of a stage role? If she is "in character," could she have been portraying a "madwoman?"
