      Except that Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906) would have been dead several years before this photo was taken, and very much older than this woman had she lived into the 1910s. The photo caption seems to refer to the banner's text, rather than to the woman carrying the banner.

      pennylrichardsca: Good point--the original caption that we used as the title doesn't appear to tell the whole story. We'll look into clarifying the title in our source data and reloading the description to Flickr.

      The woman in the photo is Florence Jaffray Harriman

      Yes, looks like the same person. Thanks for spotting her! We'll update the description next time we update.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called 1910s Fashion, and we'd love to have this added to the group!
