When you compare this to the 1847 photograph, they look very much alike. Not only in their features, but in the same way both sitters look directly and unabashedly at the viewer. Despite the long exposure time, when they had to stay motionless, both sitters look alive, not frozen - there's a vitality there that won't be hidden. I really think it's Emily. I sure hope it's Emily.
