Full portrait

Today we see a full portrait of a woman in a lovely 1890s gown. The sleeves are a bit poufed at the shoulders, the waist is small and the skirt flares over the hips to fall in an inverted U shape. She has some fancy jewelry at her throat and quite lovely ruffles on the bottom of her skirt. The chair leaves something to be desired, but it’s a prop after all.

Her photographer was Tomlinson Bros in Hannibal, MO. Of course, I can’t think of Hannibal without thinking of Tom Sawyer.
