1617 : Lost And Found - The Electrifying Woman
UNKNOWN WOMAN : J KERBY & SON, IPSWICH & HARWICH
This Victorian studio portrait comes from the Ipswich studios of J Kerby & Son. The firm was active in the Ipswich area in the 1880s and 1890s, and at one stage advertised that they were able to take portraits with the help of electric lights - albeit for a premium price above their normal rate. This could well be one of those premium photographs - the lady has an electrifying look about her.
