Ramelie is a pretty uncommon first name, and it may or may not be the person on the picture. Ramelie wrote a bunch of postcards to my grandfather, but I could never figure out who she was (I assume a cousin).

    Nice photo from a bygone era. Those hand-colored print were in-between photos and paintings, I wonder if the colors were the actual one at the time of the sitting, or the photographer were taking artistic freedom when coloring.

      I have no idea, but I assume it is artistic freedom. Just an assumption. I also assume that the coloring was done by someone else other than the photographer, further down the publishing line.
