What it is:

Photo (a bit more than 3.5 x 2.5 inches) mounted to a cardboard frame/backing (8 x 6 inches; I have cropped some of the backing from this scan).

What I know about it:

Written on the back in pen is Ruth and Aunt Annie Clegg Eller.


Sometimes, when looking at antique photos, I get a sensation of looking back across time.  But while I have plenty of photos of people looking directly at the camera, only a portion of those give me the sense that the subject is peering back across time at me.  This is one of those photos.
