Here she looks a very Grande Dame.
She was jilted by the swindler Compeyson at twenty to nine on the morning of her wedding. Ever afterwards she wore her wedding dress and just one shoe.
All the clocks in her house were stopped at twenty to nine.
The Wedding Breakfast - including the cake - was left to moulder away.
Was she an old lady?
Certainly an inspiration for photographers:
How do you imagine her?
