Opinions, please on people in this photo from my family collection.   EITHER John Daniel (Darb) Allen and Mary Hood, parents of Jessie Pearl ALLEN Pittman (my Father's mother); OR it is a photo of Guifford Patterson Pittman and Mildy Brian, parents of Charles Patterson Pittman (my Father's father.) Date range would be 1888 to 1895.
WikiTree profile: Mary Allen

After answering your G2G question, I went ahead and took the 2 photos you have on Mary Hoods profile and used photoshop to lay one image on top of the other bringing the opacity down on the top image to try and match up the faces to see if they fit.

And they do... perfectly!

So without a doubt Mary Hood is in fact the woman in your photo.
