#15273 - Civil War Ambrotype of a Miss Melaine type lady
This is an original 1/9-th glass plate Civil War era Ambrotype in a full leatherette case. She reminds me of Miss Melaine (Ashley Brooks wife) in Gone With the Wind. Is that him in the photo-brooch at her neck, or a soldier beau? Her name was Maggie Alen, as written behind image in case. There are other notations which might lead to more discovery. There is a love poem in pencil that might be more clear to those who can decipher cursive... Nice contrast & clarity. A wife for your soldier image!
