Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

This lovely lady is the last of the Donna Anspach photos, and what a lovely image to conclude the collection. Her hair is in a braided crown popular during the 1880s and you can see the frisse curls around the face that were considered very feminine. Quite a lovely image. I’d imagine her dress was made of velvet in the darker areas and silk or wool in the lighter areas. It has self fabric covered buttons (which I hate making) and a tied bow at the neckline. The photo was made by Kirk at 661 Broad St, Newark NJ. The location is across from Military Park, but has definitely been redeveloped since the photo was made – it’s now the location of a high rise for Prudential Insurance.
