Julia Jackson (Mrs Herbert Duckworth), 1874





albumen print of Julia Jackson (Mrs Herbert Duckworth) by Julia Margaret Cameron, September 1874

This photo was taken four years after Julia’s first husband’s death. She was still in mourning and the grief is still visible on her face. She was only 24 years old when her husband died, leaving her with three small children. The photo was taken in Freshwater, September 1874. How skinny she has become…

She is wearing the same dress in this photo here.
