Late 1890’s Dance Photo

Scan_Pic1723 1I have a lovely photo to share with you!  This elegant couple looks ready for a dance or ball.  The woman’s white dress is beautifully embellished in many ways.  Those huge, late 1890’s, leg-o-mutton sleeves are swirled to make quite a statement!  She is ready for a whirl around the dance floor, feathered fan in hand, to cool after a thrilling waltz or two-step!  She and her handsome gent wear matching rose corsages.
