A lovely wedding photo – from the 1870’s – according to the bustle! I love the layers of ruffles. Taken by Bowman Photographer, Ottawa, Illinois, a carte-de-visite.
This very nice photo of a middle aged woman. The ruffled collar of her dress and the collar of her blouse, with its large bow, make quite the impression – as do her earrings! Photo taken by Fred C. Low, 110 Cambridge Street, E. Cambridge, Massachusetts, a carte-de-visite.
The dress in this photo is all about the stripes – and special sleeves! Early to middle 1860’s. The photo was taken by P. Jones Photographer, Hope Street, Wrexham, Wales, a carte-de-visite.
This is a great example of the 1870’s bustle! Victorian all the way! The photo was taken by D. Jones Artist, 66 Bold Street and 11 Church Street, Liverpool, England, a carte-de-visite.
This is an old tintype from the late 1850’s, very early 1860’s. The fullness of the lower sleeves on the woman’s dress help date this photo. There is a slight hint of color in the cheeks of both the man and woman – a hand-tint that was used during that time period.
This is a beautiful photo, although not in the best shape! The woman wears a dress reminiscent of the early 1860’s, but has a lovely check shawl over her shoulders that just makes the picture! The photo was taken by F. Gutekunst, 706 Arch Street, Philadelphia, a carte-de-visite.
I hope you have enjoyed the 1860-1870 fashion show today! Good luck with your research!
