    I hate to be that guy but I've come across this story before.
    Unfortunately this picture was aparently taken by a famous photographer of his time called napoleon sarony and is believed to have been taken between 1866-1871.
    A reverse image search identified the woman to be grace rawlinson a English actress who was in America in the 1870s.
    According to some this story was created as an advertisement for a steampunk novel.

    Even thought the story is made up, it's pretty rare we stumble upon lady time travelers.

    True! My heart sank when I saw they had identified not only the photographer but the actress in the photo.
    I would rather it had stayed an unsolved mystery because it's such a beautiful story.. I especially like how she became quite the celebrity before disappearing.
    I could just imagine her telling them about iPods, iPhones and trying to explain twitter haha.
