Civil War Era Photograph

Greetings, all! It has finally been determined our computer woes had been correctable by home means, a fact most welcome here at our studio.
So here we are, for the first time in quite a while, with a brand new image for our readers.
I found this old photo in a tray with a few other items at an antiques mall. The way the two figures in our photo are dressed would imply they were well off enough to keep a servant or two, perhaps one cook and a nursery maid or regular maid of all work. The detailing in their outfits is so precisely done and calmly tasteful, they can't have risen from the ranks of the poor of their time, for they are too self assured. I partway cleaned up the one, leaving you the original's spotty, rusty look should you require it.
Happy Creating!
