Friday's Photo: Is this a Quinn?

I love her clothes, jewelry and hair. Can anyone date this picture? 

I received this scan of a photograph from a descendant of Mary Ann Quinn Meaney, daughter of William Quinn and Bridget Brannally of Kinvara, Galway, Ireland. It is suspected that this is a daughter or granddaughter of William and Bridget. 

The couple had four daughters 

  • Mary Anne Quinn (born 1888) married  Lawrence Dominic Meaney who lived in Louisville, KY. 
  • Margaret Mary "Peggy" Quinn (born 1892) married Edward Quinn Dawson and lived in New York. 
  • Celia Agnes Quinn (born 1898) married Richard J. Houlihan and lived in NYC. 
  • Bridget “Delia” Quinn (born 1901) married Joseph Stanton. Bridget remained in Ireland.  
And two sons 

  • Peter Quinn (born 1896) remained in Ireland and never married. 
  • William Joseph Quinn (born 1894) and married  Susanna Murray. They lived in NYC. 

Was this Delia Quinn who remained in Ireland or the daughter of Margaret Mary Quinn? Or, a cousin or family friend? We may never know; however, I have identified many photos by putting them on-line. Someone may have the same photograph. And, their's may have a name on the back.
