Cabinet Card of I A Brown at 90 years old, 1908
People associated with this item
Fabulous photo of the 90 year old I A Brown, born May 6th 1818, posing with her dog for a photograph in October 1908.
Inscribed on the reverse:
"Taken Oct 2 1908
I A Brown
Born May 6 1818"
At the time of Ms Brown's birth, King George III was still on the throne, Jane Austen was still having novels published for the first time and Emily Bronte was still in her mother's womb. An evocative item and fabulous piece of history.
