From the leafless trees we can see that this photograph was taken in Winter, but the young lady's lovely smile effortlessly spans 125 years, to fill the scene with warmth for us today.

I can easily imagine that the person holding the camera was the 'focus' of her happiness. If so, I hope they enjoyed many golden years together.

It's very unusual in early photographs to see the subject smiling . Perhaps she was going to meet to her yong man . Ah yong love!.
