Hello. I'm writing about Taylor's memoir, and if you could give more more information about this photo/frontispiece, I would greatly appreciate it. For example, what kind of uniform is Taylor wearing in this photo? Is it even a uniform?

I have what I believe to be the only tintype of Susie King Taylor.
