    Default Where might this photo be? And Habit?

    Does anyone have an idea if this habit is of the Sisters of Mercy?
    It is believed in the family that Elizabeth got to be a Mother Superior in a convent in England.
    Looking at the back of the photo it is stamped velox several times so probably dates from 1940-50s.

    Elizabeth Kearns/kearins/kerins born Tralee,County Kerry 1865. Father William Kearins and mother Elizabeth Mulligan.
    In 1881 census she is with her parents in Gaia Lane,Lichfield listed as a 15 year old pupil/teacher.
    By 1891 she is not with her father William in Woolrich,London. Perhaps she went back to Ireland?
    Possible 1911 census Elizabeth Kearns born Tralee at St.Anns Orphanage in Orpington,Kent listing as a teacher but the age is off by 8 years?

    Can anybody help?
