As site visitor Auntie Kat pointed out on my previous post – Toothsome – she could see herself wearing the hat pictured….apparently, these two women saw the same potential in this hat!
If you look at this photo, and then look back at the previous photo, you will see these two women are wearing the same hat. They must have attended the photographer’s studio on the same day. Perhaps they were wandering through a marketplace and decided with giggles and shining eyes to have their portraits made. We shall never know, but owing to this young lady wearing her muffler on top of her outerwear, I can only imagine it was winter.
Completely unrelated is this pretty face with strong but feminine features, glossy hair, and shapely eyebrows. Her collar is high and straight, leading me to the 1870s for the time frame. I like her straight line of buttons that stand out in contrast to the color of her dress. Her hair style draws from the 1860s, but her clothing is firmly in the following decade.
