Anna Graves
She is wearing a dress that reaches her ankles, a double breasted coat with large sleeves and a hat with a large light colored bow. I wonder where she was going?

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

  3. That is quite the outfit. Especially the bow on the hat contrasted with the coat. With all the info Iggy found, here's hoping for a future Full Circle!
