This is a 1920's era sepia photograph of my son-in-law's grandmother, Simone de le Riviere de la Souchere Delery. She came to the United States from France in the 1920's and settled in New Orleans. She was a French professor at Newcomb College in New Orleans for many years. She was knighted by the French government in the 1960's for a book she wrote about Napoleonic soldiers in Louisiana that was considered to be historically significant in the way that it connected the histories of France and Louisiana. The photograph was discovered after death among her papers. No one in the family had ever seen it. It may have been the equivalent of glamour shot or a Mardi Gras costume. Mamine, as she was called by her grandchildren, lived to be 102 years old.
