"Victorian Fashions: A Pictorial Archive" by Carol Belanger Grafton has a picture from 1866 of a woman with a coat and hairstyle almost exactly like this.

Also, if you know the photographer, you can look him up in "Directory of Pennsylvania Photographers, 1839-1900" by Linda A. Ries and Jay W. Ruby.
