I have no information about this tattered photo, but I can make up a lot of stories.

Obviously this wasn't taken during colonial times so we can perhaps surmise this lady was dressed up for a play during the past century and someone decided to take her photo and then tart her up a bit. Now, whether or not they intentionally made her look like she'd been drinking from a jug of cheap wine I don't know.
Sepia Saturday for this week is of a very nice looking lady, a real lady, adorned in her finery. Mine looks a bit like her finery has seen better days. Actress or working girl? We'll never know.
