This photo was located in upstate New York. It was originally taken at the Holmes Photographic Studio on Broadway, in Albany NY.

There is a paper cover, which when opened reads:
Aunt Ida, from her niece Edith M. Long Mead, August 17, 1909.
Find-a-Grave's website has the same photo, and apparently someone there has already done all the research for me. The following comes from that site:

Birth: Dec. 19, 1890
Unionville (Albany County)
Albany County
New York, USA
Death: Feb. 18, 1962
Albany County
New York, USA

Daughter of: Peter Henry Long. Sr. (1860-1946) and Sarah E. Van Deusen Long (1864-1942.)

Wife of: John J. Mead (1870-1944).

Mother of: Albert Henry Mead

"Aunt Ida" would appear to be Idella Long, a sister to Edith's father.
