Who is she?

Many people have photographs of ancestors that they can't identify.

This woman's photo is in my mother's collection and we believe it to be someone from the Carrick family who migrated from England (previously Ireland) to Sydney, Australia in 1880. The family lived around the Balmain area of Sydney. This photo was taken at Tasma Studio, 176 King St, Newtown (as noted on the back of the photograph) so I think it was taken around 1896 when this studio is thought to have operated, according to the website Tasmania in Photographs.

Does anyone out there recognise her? If you do, please email me at
