more rare photos are found locked in a cupboard 

A beautiful young woman from an age long past. Who can she be? (click on it to enlarge, click here for hi-res image)

We know little of who, where, why, when, for any of these photos - but perhaps you do? You will notice that on some there are lines. These appear to be caused at certain degrees of enlargement when scanning the glass plates - possibly due to an interference pattern being set up by the silver halide crystals in the plate`s gelatine emulsion. If you slightly reduce the size of the image, they tend to lessen, or by using a slight "soften" filter in your photo software.
