My father recently found the photograph of his grandmother attached below. Her name was Anna Maria Leichert, though I believe the surname to be her first married name. She lived in Berlin, Germany and was born in 1879, so based on her appearance in the photograph, I'm guessing that the photograph was from around the turn of the century.
My question is about the clothing and pose in this photograph. Does this appear to be Roma dress or would this have been a contrived costume?
Any information and insight would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you, Julie
