|At first glance I was sure this was certainly at least an 1850s
photo, with the woman's mitts and bodice. A message written
behind this photo, however, dates it to 1863. This may just be a
good example of a person wearing an older style.
|This is a really nice photo of a young woman in the
1850s. Notice how well-fitting her dress is, and the
way her hair is braided.
|Very cute photo of a brother and sister. Notice the
fan-bodice on the girl, and the boy's collar.
|Mother and daugher. Like many of the little girls,
this girl's hair is cut short. The mother's hair is in
the popular smooth "wings" of the late 1840s.
