A local mystery

By Jim Devlin

This photograph was found by Karen Pearman, a librarian at Billericay Library.

It was found in a library book recently (November 2015) and on the back it reads "Give me a good home. Found in a library book in 2005"

Do you recognize this woman?

Is she a librarian? She is holding a book.

Do you have an opinion of when the photo was taken? We think 1900 - 1910 based on her clothing.

Do you recognize where she is sitting?
