young victorian lady with a big fancy hat

One of the very few nice profile portraits I've found in my collection of vintage family photos. And I love it even more for being a Victorian lady (though she might be Edwardian). But because she's far back in time, I have no way to know (yet) who she is.

 

I love her hat, but I have to wonder if she only wore such a thing on very rare particular occasions. Maybe the only reason this lady wanted this photograph taken of herself was because she had this hat! So many questions unanswered.
