This woman appears to be attired in local dress – the two aprons over her skirt, and ribbons on pockets, sleeves and her exotic headwear look very colorful and traditional. When I purchase photos taken outside the United States I always wonder how they got here. Did this woman have her photo taken to remind her of the local customs and traditions that she would not have when she came to the United States? Or was this a photo taken for a relative to bring with them on their journey for a remembrance of a loved one left behind. If only these old photos could talk – they would have interesting tales to tell!
