And she managed to look like that without makeup. <sigh>

Any guess at when the picture was taken? Clues that we have so far are the hair style, no makeup (She has beautiful and natural "Cupid's Bow" lips), no earring holes, no manicure, and  the dress. She lived 1887 to 1933. Although portraits may be different, I cannot tell if a glass plate negative was used. "Modern" day nitrate film negatives were invented in 1903. And I will NEVER guess a woman's age.
I would say somewhere in the first decade of the 20th century. I'm going to guess that this might have been taken right around the time of her marriage, so that would put it 1907/1908. Hair style and clothing, as well as her age, are about right for that.
