La Planchadora

From a scarce CDV album of mexican occupationals made by the studio "Cruces y Campa" in the 1860s. The album contains 40 views of occupations, vendors and marketeers, a portrait of a woman (maybe the owner) and a view of the "three Naoleons". So maybe this album had been brought from Mexico by one of the soldiers of the emperor Maximilian.
