Treasure Chest Thursday - An Old Photo of Sarah McGinn

This is an old photo of my great-great grandmother, Sarah (McGinn) Meagher. Based on her outfit and what appears to be a bouquet of flowers in her hands, I assume this was taken on her wedding day, which means it would have been taken in 1897. I'm also assuming that the people beside her are her parents, James McGinn & Rachel Ellsworth. The picture itself is printed on some kind of glass-like material. 

The photo was kept by my grandmother. When she passed away, it was given to me.
