I know this is a long shot but does anyone know anything about this photo?

And living beings remain in cyclic existence,
For that long, may I too remain,

Madge Macbeth disguised as a gypsy fortuneteller.

Quote:
American-born Madge Macbeth (1878-1965) became a Canadian citizen after marrying Canadian engineer Charles William Macbeth. Charles died of tuberculosis in 1908, leaving Macbeth with two children. She lived the rest of her long life in Ottawa, where she parlayed her talent and her social connections into a successful literary career. A writer who circulated in the American and Canadian upper classes, friend to prime ministers and govenors-general, Macbeth fictionalized the politics of her class in The Land of Afternoon (1924) and The Kinder Bees (1935), and she wrote articles on diplomats, princesses, and debutantes for Canadian Courier and Mayfair magazines. Her world view combined the assertiveness of the New Woman with the tradition of maternal feminism. Macbeth moved between the private and public spheres - travelling around the world, supporting her family by writing, volunteering in several Canadian cultural organizations. A founding member of the Canadian Authors Association, Macbeth was also actively involved in the Canadian Women´s Press Club and the Ottawa Drama League. She was a prolific writer, authoring countless articles and short stories, two serialized novels, two memoirs, radio and stage drama, a history, and twenty novels

Apprechiate that thanks Curator.

I made the card myself from an old cabinet card and the picture I found online and photoshopped it a little. I wonder if many of the public would know the origin of it if I were to use it in a story?

I sincerely doubt you would have any interruptions. Few have the powers of artifact detection that our Curator possesses. Lovely prop!

Wonder if the cards she is showing have a significance? At the Death Emporium we often use cards a symbols in the dead hands of our clients.

Very nicely made. If you want to detect a fraud "antique photo", it's very easy: use a black light flashlight. Modern paper is luminous, vintage isn't.
It took me me one minute to find who she was, but I'm accustomed to do research.
So, use it!.

I got the cards from colonial Williamsburg. They are the best replica cards I've come across to date.
