Photo: Lang and his child bride

I did a post recently about Ah Lang and his child bride and yesterday I was able to go back and get a scan of the photo.  For those who didn’t read my earlier post, handwritten on the back of the picture is this: 

Ah Lang
Bought wife for $6 in San Francisco.  She poisoned him six years later and remarried.   Oroville, Butte County, c. 1900.

    Is her hair short?

      My guess would be pulled back, but this is the early 1900s… I’m not real familiar with what the “fashion” was then. It may have been short.
