The following couple photos are from the 1860’s to 1870’s. They give us a good example of the fashions of the time period.
I wish the woman was not hidden by the table! Photo taken by Schmitz V. Witt, No. 565 West Water Street, Wisconsin. There is a small tear on the back of the picture where the name of the city would be!
This is an interesting couple. I can’t decided if her hair is pulled to the left side, or if it could be a ribbon. Photography by Condit & Collamer, Over the Post Officer, Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania.
A slightly older couple, but look how beautiful she is! Her dress is very pretty. Photo taken by Broich & Kremer, 116 & 118 Spring Street, opposite Plankinton House, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
This couple was photographed by Hardy J. Van Arnam, 4 King Street, Troy, New York.
This photo was taken in the 1870’s. Note the woman’s tiny waist! And the skirt is pulled around to the back to form a bustle. The gentleman’s coat is buttoned only at the top. Taken by Dunlap photographer, Brooklyn, Iowa.
Perhaps a wedding photo? The dress is very decorative and the addition of the veil does seem appropriate. No information on back.
