I believe that this is a photo of Lina Boronow (1850-1901), wife of Feodor Boas (1850-1904). She was born in Germany, daughter of Joseph Boronow and Ernestine Lustig. Feodor Boas was a successful Montreal businessman who also emigrated from Germany. Along with his brother Moritz Boas (1854-1928), he operated several businesses including the Granite Woolen Mills in Ste. Hyacinthe, at least one business in Montreal, and a had stake in an Asbestos mine in the Eastern Townships. Michael Hyde, Ottawa, ON
