Description:
This looks like a picture of the walking dead - zombies - at the height of fashion in formal dress in 1914. It is Mrs. Middleton Elliot, Jr and Capt. C.B. Morgan, U.S.N.

They were posing for a ball (perhaps a Navy Ball - her husband was also in the Navy) but with their closed eyes, it does seem a bit spooky?

My apologies to any descendants but this 1914 photo from the Library of Congress of Mrs. Middleton Elliot, Jr and Capt. C.B. Morgan, U.S.N looks more like a photo of the "walking dead" than people at a fancy ball. Maybe it's because they were caught with their eyes closed? (Flash cameras were BRIGHT back then.) But gotta believe the Library of Congress - they are real people!!
