Identifying the Subjects of Photos

We have had a very encouraging response to the publication of these two photographs on our web site and in the local newspaper. Many people have contacted us with information about those involved.  The following is a collation of the various responses. There are still some unidentified faces and some disagreement as to who some of them were, so we are always happy to hear more suggestions. I have numbered all the individuals to make referring to them easier.

Celebrating History Week 2017

History’s Mysteries!

Reproduced from the Society’s newsletter, Kilmore Connections, Issue 70, December 2016.

Can anyone help identify this lady ? The photo is in the collection of the Kilmore Historical Society but we have no information on the sitter, who is wearing an ornately ornamented nineteenth century dress and a cameo on a chain.

The picture was most likely taken in the late nineteenth century, perhaps around 1880.

Perhaps her distinctive face might jog some memories.

If so, please email us at kilmorehistoricalsociety@gmail.com
