    No success on this so far ... it occurs to me that "Lady J. Hamilton" could be the name of the young woman, OR the dog. What I've looked at so far ... LOC Prints & Photographs, Chronicling America, Google (search), New York Times archives, Google newspapers and books. Not to be confused with famous model/muse, (Emma) Lady J. Hamilton, late 1800's. earlier comment seems off-topic

    This could be an early photograph of Lady Rosalind Bingham, who married James Hamilton, 3rd Duke of Abercorn in 1894 IMO. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosalind_Hamilton,_Duchess_of_Abercorn They were in the news in December 1922, when James Hamilton was appointed governor of Northern Ireland, s. photos in Evening star. [volume], December 14, 1922, Page 25 chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83045462/1922-12-14/ed-... (There is some similarity with her granddaughter Lady Moyra Kathleen Campbell-Grove (née Hamilton) as well IMO, s. photo in www.npg.org.uk/collections/search/portrait/mw251257/Lady-...)

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]], "This could be an early photograph..." I forgot to remember that the date a photograph was taken may often bear no relationship to when it maybe have appeared in the Bain News Service! [Revised} At first I thought this could be an earlier photo as you suggested. When I look at the photo of Lady Rosalind Bingham in Chronicling America, I note she married James Hamilton, 3rd Duke of Abercorn in 1894. Thus the photo, below of Lady Katherine Hamilton in 1923 cannot be the same person. Would she have changed her name from Rosalind to Katherine when she married James Hamilton? There is a younger photograph of Lady Katherine Hamilton as a bridesmaid at the wedding of Prince Albert, Duke of York, and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon on May 3, 1923, where her age is closer to that of the Bain News Service photograph. Given the estimated date range of the Bain News Service photo [between ca. 1920 and ca. 1925], would Lady Hamilton be in the news due to her being a bridesmaid in the royal wedding? (I still haven't resolved the "Lady J." vs "Lady K" (Katherine). "Royal Wedding Group Photograph" May 3, 1923 by Bettmann/CORBIS ALT NAME 103 May 1923: The royal wedding group photograph, with the Duke of York and his bride in the centre. At the left are Lady Mary Cambridge, Lady Mary Thynne, the Hon. Diamond Hardinge, and the Hon Elizabeth Elphinstone, in front. At the right are Lady May Cambridge, Lady Katherine Hamilton, Miss Betty Cator and the Hon. Cecilia Bowes-Lyon, in front. I agree that the portrait of Lady Moyra Kathleen Campbell-Grove (née Hamilton) bears a stunning likeness! Perhaps there's more to investigate there...

    One guess has been: Lady Moyra Kathleen Campbell-Grove (1905-1990) www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q75333142

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/pixelwrangler and https://www.flickr.com/photos/richardarthurnorton: I never pretended that this photo shows Lady Kathleen Hamilton (1905-1990) or Lady Moyra Kathleen Campbell-Grove - I would expressly rule that out. As I wrote, I think it's probably Rosalind Hamilton, née Lady Rosalind Bingham (1869-1958). If so, this photo was taken around 1887.

    This seems much more modern than 1887 to me. Perhaps searching through the name of the photographer would work, but it is not easy to make out.

    Many thanks for all of the searches and additional info provided. The search for this image proved to be very interesting. My P&P colleague, Jon (LOC PP), located a similar photo through a ProQuest search (thanks again, Jon!). The image appears in the July 12, 1922 issue of The Tatler, a British newspaper. He added “It doesn’t appear to be readily online; you can search it in one public database, but have to subscribe to see the full size images.” Notably, both the jacket worn by the sitter as well as the small dog she’s holding appear to be a match in both portraits. The Tatler image is captioned: “Lady Jean Hamilton and Friend. The eldest of the three daughters of the Duke and Duchess of Hamilton and Brandon...” Jon also noted that the following Wikipedia entry for the Duke of Hamilton lists Lady Jean Hamilton as the first of three daughters: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Douglas-Hamilton,_13th_Duke_...

    Found this in a retouched version, published in the Americus times-recorder. (Americus, Ga.) November 15, 1922, with the caption: "Daughter of Scotland’s Premier Peer. This is the latest photo of Lady Jean Hamilton, 18-year-old daughter of the Duke of Hamilton, greatest of all of Scotland’s nobles and the thirteenth of his line." chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn89053204/1922-11-15/ed-...
