Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Today’s attractive young lady is showing off an interesting necklace. I have seen similar shaped necklaces on other cabinet cards and CDVs, so I assume this was a fashion trend in the 1880s. Note her brooch – a cameo? – above the necklace, and above that the ruffled collar. It feels a tiny bit Elizabethan, to be honest.

The photo was made by Patton & Dietrich’s Photograph Gallery in Reading, PA.

    The ruffled collar and the ruched front definitely give it an Elizabethan feel.. My thoughts exactly.
