This photo came from a suitcase belonging to my Grandfather, Lawrence Russell Nash. I inherited it after he died. We did not know these photo's existed. The album contains Nash/Costin photo's but no names. The obvious Scottish/Irish dress caught my attention as I have been trying to trace my roots to one or both of these countries.

Mystery: This photo came from a suitcase belonging to my Grandfather, Lawrence Russell Nash. I inherited it after he died. We did not know these photo's existed. The album contains Nash/Costin photo's but no names. The obvious Scottish/Irish dress caught my attention as I have been trying to trace my roots to one or both of these countries. I am looking for information on the woman and/or the native dress she is wearing. Any help on identifing her or the country from whence she came would be greatly appreciated.

Charlene McGowan The dress is a Scottish kilted skirt with sash; why she is wearing a man's sporran (purse) I don't know. This particular sporran is the type a piper would wear with the horse hair trim.

Kathy Greenawalt Nice picture. Make sure to hang on to it. Someone may come up with an answer to who it is. Kathy
