This image has been identified as Harriet Dorsey. We assess that the photo was taken in the United States c.1880. Research indicates that a Harriet Dorsey was born in 1859. In any event, this Harriet Dorsey would have been born during slavery days. Her eyes are simply haunting and indicate a life of pain to us. We believe that this is an important image reflecting on the times in which she lived.
Research also shows another woman named Harriet Dorsey celebrating her 106 birthday. While it may be difficult to see any family resemblance coincidences do happen. Perhaps she is the granddaughter of the Harriet Dorsey in the lead photo.
