Maria Manuela Valencia de Briones?

6 May

This carte-de-visite was discovered in the California Historical Society’s portrait collection. The woman is identified as “Jesua Briones,” wife of “Philipe Briones,” in a handwritten note scrawled on the back. The picture was taken between 1863 and 1871 by Dyer’s Photograph Gallery in Martinez, California, when Valencia was in her late 60s or early 70s. So powerful in her gaze and bearing, might this woman be María Manuela Valencia de Briones?
