Hannah's hairstyle is that of the early 1860s with her ears covered, she is holding a book - a standard convention to say that she was educated and could read, not all women at this time could.

Selina Lousia Farlie taken by her husband in the early 1870s and may be a later reprint made to hand round the family after her death.
