Emily's New Look

The UK Guardian reports a rare find: a new photo of Emily Dickinson, showing the poet in her 20s, as a contrast to the daguerreotype of her in her teens that we are all used to seeing. That's the claim anyway. After having submitted the newly located image to various tests (which you can read about at the article), experts are pretty sure it's Emily. What do you think?

New photo: Supposedly Emily on the left, with friend Kate Scott Turner.

Photo: A new photo reportedly shows Emily Dickinson in her mid-twenties (rather than the teenage daguerreotype we commonly know her from). What do you think about the likeness?

New Emily, Old Emily. What do you think?
