Temperence wears an interesting and unusual black silk veil on her head. It has the appearance of being religious. She was a Wesleyan Methodist as per census. wiki states: "The Wesleyan Methodist Church was the name used by the majority Methodist movement in Great Britain following its split from the Church of England after the death of John Wesley 1703-1791 and the appearance of parallel Methodist movements. The word "Wesleyan" was added to the title to differentiate it from the Welsh Calvinistic Methodists, founded by George Whitefield who, like Wesley and his brother Charles, had been a member of the Holy Club in Oxford to which the (originally derogatory) epithet "Methodist" was first applied, and from the Primitive Methodist movement, which separated from the Wesleyans in 1807."

This wonderful photo was found in the area of Livingston, Ontario & Monroe County, New York, about 50 miles across Lake Ontario to Toronto. Tempe, Tempy, Tempie are also nicknames for Temperance. A beautiful old photo.
